Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) are critical components in any organization, so too at CrossInt. Companies that embrace diversity, equity and inclusion will undoubtedly reap the benefits of a vibrant, diverse and inclusive workforce. At CrossInt, we can only encourage and help promote this by bringing together diverse talent and diverse leadership, and doing so with the people behind it in mind and through a lived-through DEI ethos.
Diversity is the presence of differences within a given environment. In the workplace, that can mean differences in race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age and socio-economic class. It can also refer to differences in physical ability, your mother tongue, whether you have children or not, all of which are also components of diversity.
Equality & Inclusion
Equality is the process of ensuring that processes and programmes are impartial, fair and produce equal outcomes for each individual.
Inclusion is ensuring that people feel at home in the workplace. This means that every employee feels comfortable and supported by the organisation when it comes to being their authentic self.
A lived-through DEI ethos
Combining these three elements, DEI is an ethos that recognises the value of diverse voices and highlights inclusiveness and employee well-being as central facets of success. To bring these values to life, companies need to implement programmes and initiatives that actively make their organisations more diverse, equitable and inclusive.
Recruiting diverse candidates in executive & direct search is therefore essential for organisations that want to leverage the strengths and unique perspectives of a range of individuals to drive growth and stimulate innovation. The recruitment process should be designed to eliminate bias and ensure that everyone is judged on his or her merits.
