To unleash the full promise of Diversity, make better decisions and drive innovation, organizations must learn to appreciate and mine the knowledge and experience of individuals with different backgrounds and viewpoints. Inclusiveness is a competency which needs to be developed and acted upon by all executives in order to release diversity’s strategic power.

Already, companies serving global markets are actively building cohesive cross-cultural teams. But even companies at the leading edge of Diversity and Inclusion know there is much work yet to be done.

Take a Diversity Pulse Check

Has your company firmly embedded Diversity and Inclusion in your business strategy and in the attitudes of leaders and staff, so they can transform your organization’s culture, helping it embrace differences to unlock the promise of greater value? Numbers alone do not make your organization diverse and inclusive. The true measure is the degree to which your culture encourages people to value the strengths and ideas of those who are in some way different from themselves. Egon Zehnder offers a Diversity Pulse Check to gauge your management’s conscious and subconscious commitment to inclusion; map how leaders’ current diversity mindset shapes your culture; and identify where often unconscious biases in individuals and processes work against your Diversity and Inclusion aspirations.

As a truly global and equal partnership comprising individuals from many cultures, ethnic groups, languages, and beliefs, we have a deeply personal appreciation for the value of diversity. As a firm dedicated to working with our clients to build their global and local talent capabilities, we view diversity as an essential adaptation to today’s dynamic markets as well as a key to enhanced innovation, creativity, and growth.
