2022 is the time for your company to implement DEI best practices. Experts agree.

“As we approach a new year, the next 6-12 months will present a critical fork in the road to organizations that are more focused on appearing committed to DEI than being committed to DEI,” DEI Practitioner Nicholas Pearce.

As the Great Resignation drags on, the competition between companies to find quality talent remains fierce and does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon. This upcoming year is a pivotal moment for businesses to show genuine care for employees through meaningful attention and investment towards DEI. Companies that fail to distinguish themselves in regards to DEI will ultimately lose this war for talent.

Pearce recommends three DEI best practices that companies can implement to build faith in their efforts this upcoming year:

1) Be transparent about what you already know
2) Move DEI from the periphery to the organization’s core
3) Ensure top executives are committed to advancing DEI

Leaders should have enough information by now and can no longer stay stuck in discovery mode during 2022.
