Three Star Leadership: From INSEAD: Diversity in the workplace: how it affects the bottom line

February 1, 2010

Great post on diversity in the workplace, yet highly important cultural asset in today’s global economy, as I do believe diversity factor really is a multicultural talent as opposed to a liability to any type of organizational structure, because multicultural diversity not only can bring innovation, creativity, but also a new approach to problem-solving and thinking within the organizations. Therefore, as company leaders we must incorporate a wide open culture to diversity (cultural differences) where “diversity is not something on the adges; is not some kind of side issue, is not longer a conversation from a position of weakness, but rather diversity is a conversation from a position of numbers, of strength, of demand or talent innovation. It is the mainstream” (Hewlett). In summary, we must force ourselves to think differently, otherwise change will take a long time, so diversity in all its dimension is absolutely essential for companies today.
