During International Women's Week, the topic of workplace equality has been in the news and at the forefront of peoples' minds. Thanks to the Equality Act 2010, it's more than just advisable, it's mandatory for organisations to ensure that none of the 9 Protected Characteristics hold anyone back in their career or contribute to discrimination against them at work.
It’s important to look beyond the mandatory requirements around Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity and examine the benefits it can bring. Creating an inclusive and diverse workplace can encourage innovation and help to improve staff retention.
Diverse and inclusive workforces spark ideas more readily and are naturally inclined to innovate and approach problems creatively. Moreover, ensuring that staff feel they are treated fairly and equally, and belong to an inclusive environment, is proven to improve staff engagement and happiness in their work.
One of Eliesha's pearls of wisdom® categories with great employer take-up is "Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity" as it is an easily-accessible and engaging resource to help staff at all levels develop a better awareness and understanding of their responsibilities around EDI.
The videos include a range of topics such as ‘Stereotyping and Making Assumptions’ and ‘What does Equality and Diversity Mean?’ which are applicable to all staff and useful as introductions to the subjects. Videos such as ‘Managing Difference’ are helpful for line managers to explore their role in promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.
