“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.”
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.
DEI practitioner Nicholas Pearce recommends three ways companies can build faith in their DEI 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
