Diversity and Inclusion Surveys

Understand the impact of your workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives, and how inclusive your people feel your culture is.

Why People Insight Diversity and Inclusion Surveys?

We know that it’s the right thing to do to have a diverse and inclusive culture in our societies and at work. Mckinsey provided the evidence in 2015 that organisations in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are likely to have 35% better financial returns than average in their industries. Diversity and Inclusion mean a broad talent pool, better talent retention and decision making that best represents our communities at large.

Our surveys help you to

  • Assess your burning employee questions across demographic groups so you can identify groups that need your attention
  • Evaluate inclusion: how your people feel about your culture and how they belong using our psychologist-developed Inclusion index
  • Understand sentiment: Dig deeper into your employees’ comments about why they feel the way they do
  • Establish inclusive, sensitive demographic data so all of your employees feel represented
  • Include protected characteristics so you can report employee survey results accurately
  • Explore intersectional data to help you promote equity in underrepresented groups

Understand the relationship between intention to stay, engagement, diversity and inclusion so you can act
