Numly’s “Diversity Matters” DEIB Peer Coaching Programs create Sustainable Behavioral Change in Organizations at the Grassroots Level.
CUPERTINO , CALIFORNIA , USA, November 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Future of Work, a.k.a a hybrid workplace, can prove to be a great cultural facilitator. With no geographical boundaries, a strategic focus on designing relevant Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives becomes paramount, with special emphasis on undoing unconscious biases, and working towards becoming more inclusive, to drive transformational organizational outcomes.
These goals can only be achieved by continuous and contextual interactions to drive behavioral change. Employing a technology-powered peer coaching platform can help employees identify their growth needs and address challenges that impede professional progress. If Organizations invest in developing these skills, they can see big results.
A 2018 Boston Consulting Group (BCG) study on How Diverse Leadership Teams Boost Innovation, suggests that increasing the diversity of leadership teams leads to more and better innovation and improved financial performance. In both developing and developed economies, companies with above-average diversity on their leadership teams report a greater payoff from innovation and higher EBIT margins. Even more interesting fact is that companies can start generating immediate gains with relatively small changes in the makeup of their senior teams.
75% of the respondents said that diversity is gaining momentum in their organizations. Companies that reported above-average diversity on their management teams also reported innovation revenue that was 19 percentage points higher than that of companies with below average leadership diversity, 45% of total revenue versus just 26%.
