Cultural Diversity & Inclusion

“Foster Innovation & boost revenue through a Diverse Workforce”  

Working in a global, virtual, and complex work environment can lead to miscommunication, stereotyping, culture shock, and a lack of cultural adaptation in a new country, meaning dysfunctional behaviours and distrust. Yet when properly harnessed, diversity and inclusion can lead to innovation, creativity, and better performance in the long term.

The problem is that most traditional coaching and training programmes focusing on demographics (gender, ethnicity, etc.) do not address the complexity of working remotely and virtually. They focus on one-off training and lack specific business objectives, focus on short-term results and barely focus on behavioral change.

U Diverse helps international organizations become more agile by building and developing global diverse talents in inclusive and productive environments while helping individuals achieve their goals internationally, adapting to new cultural settings when moving abroad, and adjusting to a diverse working environment globally and remotely in the long term.

We do things differently.

Our extensive research and consulting interventions show that there are twelve challenges to attaining an effective, diverse, virtual and inclusive work environment:

How much does it cost you?

Losing talents

67% of job seekers consider workplace diversity an important factor when considering employment opportunities, and more than 50% of current employees want their workplace to do more to increase diversity (Glassdoor).

Lack of innovation

Companies with higher than average diversity had 19% higher innovation revenue. Innovation is the key to growing businesses and making them sustainable. By making your organization diverse and inclusive, you will have more global appeal and a better range of products for your customers.

Profit

According to a 2015 McKinsey report, companies in the top quarter for radical/ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to surpass peers, while those in the same bracket for gender diversity are 15% more likely to do the same (McKinsey)

Customers outreach

78% of employees who responded to a Harvard Business Review (HBR) study said they work at organizations that lack diversity in leadership positions (Harvard Business Review)
