Waiter is that inclusion in my soup? A new recipe to improve business performance

By: Deloitte

"The pressure is on Doing more with less, fiscal pressure and constraint, uncertainty, volatility… still common themes for organisations across the globe in 2012/2013. It has shaken our confidence1 and clarity of response. Unexpectedly diversity and inclusion are emerging as beacons of hope. A little farfetched? Our groundbreaking research in three diverse workplaces (manufacturing, retail and healthcare) demonstrates the tangible uplift in business performance when employees think that their workplace is highly committed to, and supportive of, diversity and they feel highly included.

If you are still sceptical, then here is the ultimate punch line. When Deloitte modelled the relationship between diversity and inclusion and business performance, we identified an ‘uplift’ of 80% when both conditions were high. More specifically, employees who perceive their organisation is committed to, and supportive of, diversity and who feel included, are 80% more likely to believe they work in a high performing organisation, in comparison to a workplace perceived as having low commitment and support for diversity and employees not feeling included. Even when there is high diversity and low inclusion, or low diversity and high inclusion, the business outcomes are never as impressive as the high diversity and high inclusion combination."
