If people are happier working in your organization and feel that their views are being represented and prioritized, then you’ll have less turnover year over year. And when you do have a job vacancy, you’re making your open positions available to a larger group of potential candidates by making sure that you’re being as conscious as possible in your hiring efforts. Who knows—one open position could even leave you with some back-up candidates for the future or new freelancers!
Improve Your Company’s Image
Though this shouldn’t be a priority reason for focusing on diversity, it’s easy to see how it can be a great side effect. Your company’s reputation will likely improve if you make your efforts of prioritizing diversity known. You can easily become the company that employees and clients seek out amongst your competitors.
