Advance DEI initiatives to achieve greater long-term organisational success

Most of today’s organisations lack mature and effective diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programmes. The organisations that do have effective DEI programmes tend to share a range of characteristics and practices. In short, they achieve their status by working at it.

To better understand why so many struggle, as well as how the best ones succeed, this report captures survey responses from HR professionals spanning small business to large, representing virtually every industry vertical.  Learn how organisations are evolving DEI programs, including investigation in the following areas:

  • The DEI landscape, including programme maturity levels and equitable pay
  • The extent to which key DEI initiatives are developed and their perceived level of effectiveness
  • Who is typically responsible for DEI and the extent to which they are funded and supported
  • How employers’ use of training, incentives, communication practices, and metrics relate to DEI
  • The prevalence of inclusive benefits
  • The practices that seem most closely associated with DEI success
