In February, we held a live Remesh conversation with 100 professionals to understand what they had to say about:

  • What defines diversity and inclusion
  • Insights into their organization's environment
  • The metrics for D&I measurement within a company

Here are 3 key findings from that conversation.

key finding 1
Most employees believe diversity and inclusion are important for organizations. 

77% of participants believed that organizations benefit from hearing different points of view from their employees, and the diverse points of view can lead to better products and services for customers. hb1

Participants also believed that diverse and inclusive organizations can experience better productivity, smoother workflows, improved decision-making, and higher overall morale. hb2


key finding 2
Very few companies have formal training or programming related to diversity and inclusion

Despite the perceived importance, most participants indicated that their company does not have formal training or programs related to diversity and inclusion. However the majority have informal programs and work to include this area as part of the company culture. hb3While nearly half of participants are in companies doing very well at making employees feel welcome, most indicated that there was definitely room for improvement.
