Diversity 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:
- Better employee relations
- Reduction of harassment incidences
- Teamwork towards company goals
- Better interactions with your customer base
- Improves corporate culture
- Improves recruitment
- Improves client relations
- Protection against lawsuits
- Keeps diversity insurance rates down
