What is organizational climate and does it matter?

Why Diversity and Inclusion matters

Though the importance on DE&I (or diversity, equity and inclusion) has been growing in the last few years, with organizations facing the impact of Covid-19, some have shifted their focus on other strategic opportunities. These organizations may actually be risking backlash according to a 2018 McKinsey report that reveals how important diversity and inclusion practices actually are. Focusing on these practices can lead to a more innovative work culture and these organizations are more likely to meet or pass financial goals and have an overall better business outcome even during a crisis. Employees also perform better in these types of environments, often feeling more motivated and engaged with their work. Do you know what the DE&I climate of your organization is? If you’d like more information on how HRTec Assessment System can help and for a Free Initial Consultation, send us an email at [email protected].
