Building a diverse workforce requires more than a traditional approach

August 12, 2019 / Amanda Schiavo

Over the last several years employers have become more aware of the need for greater diversity and inclusion in the workplace. But the means of getting there are still unclear. Too often, employers tend to stick to traditional programs and promotion guidelines that may not work for today’s employees. Individual companies will sometimes release diversity and inclusion reports. Uber, for example, which has come under fire for its lack of diversity, released a report in July that included the company’s new effort to tie executive bonuses to diversity efforts. Namely, an HR technology platform, takes the notion of a diversity report a step further, looking across 1,300 companies to shed light on where midsize businesses are succeeding with diversity and equality efforts and areas for improvement.
