Diversity & Inclusion – A business investment
Diversity & Inclusion now plays a major role at many German companies. Around 95% now have programs aimed at promoting specific groups of staff such as women, older staff or colleagues from abroad. They hope this will benefit them financially, such as giving them better access to new, lucrative markets or the ability to recruit talent.
Even so, 80% of companies focus solely on promoting women: most neglect other important aspects, such as integrating older staff. And just 30% of those surveyed measure how they are implementing their D&I work, so they have no way of saying how successful it actually is.
These are the findings of our survey, "Diversity & Inclusion – A business investment".
