The Essentials: How Diversity Fuels Innovation
It’s important to recognize that diversity, equity, and inclusion is no longer a “nice to have,” but a source of business value with tangible benefits that are undeniable. Just look at Salesforce, which in 2022 met its target metric to have 50% of its workforce composed of people from underrepresented groups. In 2023, the company is taking an additional step to link executive compensation to specific environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals — including representation.
Tying diversity to business goals is the only way organizations can build a culture conducive to optimal problem-solving and insight generation — which is essential to innovation and competing in today’s environment. Here’s how to start down that path.
