Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are a critical part of business strategy across the globe. A focus on DEI has been proven to drive tremendous benefits to almost every part of a company. A few of the areas where businesses have seen improvements by prioritizing DEI include greater innovation, new and differing perspectives, a wider talent pool, improved performance, and reduced attrition. Even with the benefits associated with prioritizing DEI, it’s not always a priority or core value for organizations. And as a result, it’s commonplace for DEI-related employment issues to make headlines in the US and Canada. Culture Amp has partnered with Censuswide to survey over 500 HR decision-makers and 2000 employees across US and Canada around their DEI sentiments and experiences. Some of the findings include:
- 1 in 4 employees have reported being discriminated against due to their identity.
- 1 in 3 employees would not recommend their organization as a great place to work.
- 2 in 3 employees who agree that their company values diversity would recommend the organization to other people as a great place to work
