Following on and building on my previous blog Achieving gender balance at work   gender balance and diversity are something that happen over the long term and the real challenge, especially for SMEs, is the practicalities but there is no doubt that diversity is a key focus for companies.

But how can you develop a more diverse workforce in practice?

 3 quick tips that can help:

  1. Communication is the first step  and reinforcing the company's approach around developing  a diverse workforce is key. Talk about your diversity goals so that your team can be part of the journey.
  2. Repetition is key. Diversity generates greater levels of innovation and creativity. Leaders need to talk about the positive benefits that are associated with having a more diverse workforce. With different life experiences, ideas and views
  3. Think customer diversity too and consider the final product offer to the end customer and reflect their diversity to ensure greater chance of delivering great quality and service.

Diversity is not about meeting a quota but about creating a great team that is effective , successful and representative of your customer base.
