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?

Diverse and inclusive cultures are essential to society and the modern workforce. McKinsey’s evidence shows that organizations 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 represent our communities at large.
