The Business Case for Diversity

This Business in the Community (BITC) factsheet highlights the business case for diverse and inclusive organisations.

The business benefits of diversity

Diverse organisations perform better, have higher employee satisfaction and better financial returns, and are more innovative. There would be a potential boost of £24bn to the UK economy annually, if employers get race equality in the workplace right for example. ¹. However, we still have a long way to go before organisations in the UK are race, gender and age equal as this factsheet illustrates.

Looking at the statistics, this factsheet asks:

  • are organisations race, gender and age equal yet?
  • are organisations focusing on wellbeing enough?
  • what is the business for case for diversity?
