Understanding and valuing coworkers with different worldviews and experiences is essential to creating an inclusive work space. This includes accepting coworkers of different races and ethnicities, as well as different genders, sexual orientations, ages, religious beliefs, and disabilities. Diversity goes beyond what can be observed on the outside. Accepting people of different education levels, special skill sets, and personality types are key to inclusivity.
Why include diversity training in your HR criteria
Inclusion should be a top priority for all business and organizations. Creating an environment where all team members feel safe and accepted not only aids communication and improves workflow, but also allows for collaboration and innovation. A diverse team brings different experiences to the table, and in turn more solutions that resonate with large, diverse audiences.
Diversity training is an opportunity to learn about the unique perspectives in your workspace. With insight, you can be a proponent for inclusivity. Factors of inclusivity include equal opportunity, creativity, conflict resolution, collaboration, organizational policy and responsiveness, representation, and education.
Including diversity and inclusion HR criteria can start meaningful conversation in your organization, and help you create the best environment for employees and colleagues of all backgrounds.
