We all know that, from an ethical standpoint, diversity matters – but the business case is becoming stronger than ever. There are three key advantages to employers of having a diverse and inclusive team:

  1. Diverse teams attain 73% more revenue from innovation due to diversity of thinking
  1. Decisions made by diverse teams, outperform individual decision makers 87% of the time
  1. Under inclusive leadership, employees are 39% more likely to be engaged


So, what are the benefits of and how do you approach hiring a diverse individual?
