Diversity in the Workplace: A Survey of the American Business Landscape

Survey findings reveal remaining gaps and new tactics ahead

Research studies have proven that companies with great diversity outperform their peers by a significant margin. In fact, a 2015 McKinsey research report showed that gender-diverse and ethnically-driven companies are more likely to outperform their peers by 15% and 35% respectively. 

In a recent XpertHR 2015-2016 survey report of over 600 organizations, findings revealed strong progress with overall workplace diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives in the last five years, yet challenges continue to remain with the diversity of their workforces.

In particular, workplace diversity efforts since 2010 have focused on permitting employees to take unpaid leave to observe religious, cultural and ethnic holidays; and increasing efforts to recruit and hire a diverse workforce; and generally creating a “culture of inclusion”.
