At a time when cuts are being made, 360 diversity is emphasising the need to implement and manage policies relating to diversity and inclusive practice within the workplace (http://www.360diversity.com). Making cuts to human resources provides short term savings but the long term costs incurred can be far greater. It is no secret that with a diverse workforce comes a wide skill base, high productivity and more satisfied customers. It also stands a company in good stead within the marketplace and also amongst competitors.
Equality and diversity policies (http://www.360diversity.com) go a long way to addressing and meeting the needs of employees. The increased staff retention, which results from such policies, provides huge savings in recruitment costs and staff training. Along with the many other benefits associated with a diverse workforce, it is plain to see that the outlay of managing diversity in the workplace is in comparison very small.
Stuart Bray from 360 diversity comments, “Now is the time to invest in your equality and diversity strategy. Companies that use 360 diversity have in fact saved money whilst giving maximum commitment to equality and diversity and their workforce. Equality and diversity does not have to be a costly solution and using innovative tools such as 360 diversity will help employers stand above the rest.”
