is still a scary topic for most businesses and individuals to talk about. Most organizations never deal
with the inherent difficulties of bringing people from different backgrounds together. Problems are
compounded when you have to mix your customer base into the equation. There are many news stories about not only the
lack of tolerance
for those of different backgrounds, but lawsuits that
result in large monetary awards.
Talking about diversity issues
is scary for many organizations. Most of them feel that if they talk about it, something bad is going to happen.
Actually, the reverse is true. Companies that address problems and issues concerning diversity
(discrimination, harassment, advancement, inequality, etc) not only have less problems on the
back end, but protect themselves from claims if they can document the initiatives they've taken towards
eliminating such problems in their organization.
These are some of the major benefits to organizations of diversity training:
- Reduction of harassment incidences
- Teamwork towards company goals
- Better interactions with your customer base
- Improves corporate culture
- Improves client relations
- Protection against lawsuits
- Keeps diversity insurance rates down
