Creating a positive culture of acceptance and inclusion includes understanding how to tap into the hidden power of employees’ differences and create a work environment where everyone thrives. Diversity can be the root of conflict in the workplace if not managed and when conflicts go unresolved, animosity and distrust can build up on teams.
Diverse organizations and teams can yield innovative results, however, leading requires skills that need to leverage collaboration. Through diverse environments, you can positively impact employee retention, employee engagement team performance, and hiring.
