The war for talent is over — the old way of competing for top talent has contributed to the proliferation of homogeneous organizations and growing inequality across society.
– Bob Spoer, Chief Entrepreneur of People/Search at Ashoka
THE NEW CHALLENGE
In today’s world, diversity has become both an economic and moral imperative. It is a proven fact, companies with diverse teams (and leaders) outperform those with homogenous teams. Benefits of diverse (heterogeneous) groups include divergent thinking, increased creativity, and faster problem-solving. Although the business case for diversity and inclusion in the workplace is clear, many organizations lack the mindset/culture, networks, and strategies to radically improve diversity and foster an inclusive workplace.
THE FUTURE OF TALENT
A new paradigm for talent is emerging, one that leverages inclusion and collaboration to unlock potential and foster heterogeneous teams for optimal results. This new paradigm enables organizations to redistribute social capital, strengthen pipelines to diverse talent, drive new levels of innovation for the benefit of all and insulate against liability stemming from a lack of inclusion (which can cost a company millions of dollars, in addition to hurting their brand reputation). It’s a proven fact, today’s workforce is growing more diverse, younger and purpose-driven. As a result, all organizations in all sectors face a crucial decision: adapt or become obsolete.
