Guide to Understanding DE&I in the Workplace

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) is crucial for any workplace. When coupled with an inclusive culture, a diverse workforce fosters creativity, innovation, and problem-solving.

A study conducted by McKinsey & Company found that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity were 35% more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians.

Additionally, employees from diverse backgrounds bring different perspectives and experiences that can lead to new and better ideas. DE&I policies also promote fairness and equity within the workplace, ensuring all employees are given equal opportunities to succeed. This can improve employee satisfaction and loyalty, resulting in lower turnover rates and higher productivity.

Furthermore, having a workplace culture that values diversity and inclusion can help attract and retain top talent, as employees are more likely to want to work for a company that aligns with their values and beliefs. Job seekers increasingly place more importance on a diverse workforce when considering job offers.

In fact, 59% of respondents in Singapore have asked or will consider asking about a company’s DE&I policy at job interviews, as reported in our Talent Trends 2022 survey report.

Overall, having diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace is not only the right thing to do, but it makes good business sense. It can lead to improved creativity and innovation, higher employee satisfaction and loyalty, and the ability to attract and retain top talent.

A company can start implementing DE&I policies by conducting a DE&I assessment to understand where they currently stand and identify areas for improvement. The evaluation can help the company set goals and create a plan for implementing DE&I policies. The company can also establish a DE&I committee or task force to oversee the implementation and ensure progress.

While there aren’t fixed steps to follow, there are some strategies companies can use to begin implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) policies into their organisation. The strategies include and are not limited to:

  • Set DE&I goals: Give each business unit leader formal accountability for achieving DE&I results in their part of the business. For instance, diversity results that focus on representation.
  • Integrate DE&I into crucial talent management processes: Embed DE&I into key talent management processes such as recruiting, performance management, and succession planning.
  • Train leaders and employees on DE&I: Provide training and development programmes to help leaders and employees develop the skills and mindset needed to work effectively in a diverse environment.
  • Foster a culture of psychological safety: Foster a culture of psychological safety by creating an environment where all employees feel valued, included and respected, and where diverse perspectives are encouraged and celebrated.

If a company already has existing DE&I policies, there are several ways to improve them. One approach to improve on them is to ensure that they are effective. You can find out the effectiveness by measuring employee sentiment to track inclusion efforts.

Another way to improve existing policies is to provide regular training and education on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This can help ensure that employees understand the importance of such policies.

It is also vital for companies to regularly review and update their diversity, equity, and inclusion policies to ensure they remain relevant and effective.

Overall, improving diversity, equity, and inclusion policies requires ongoing effort and commitment from the top leadership of the organisation. By measuring employee sentiment, providing training and education, and regularly reviewing and updating policies, companies can create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace for all employees.

This requires a thoughtful and comprehensive approach that involves gathering employee feedback and tracking progress over time. By doing so, organisations can identify areas for improvement and take action to create a more inclusive workplace. There are several methods that organisations can use to measure diversity, equity and inclusion policies in the workplace, such as:

To measure and track employee sentiment

  • Employee surveys and focus groups: Anonymous surveys are effective for gathering employee feedback that enables organisations to identify areas that require improvement, while focus groups also provide valuable insights and allow for more open-ended discussions, which can yield in-depth feedback.
  • Demographic data: Collect demographic data about the workforce can help organisations identify areas of underrepresentation and track progress in achieving diversity and inclusion goals.
  • Exit interviews: Conduct exit interviews with departing employees can provide valuable feedback on why they are leaving the organisation and any issues related to diversity and inclusion.

To measure diversity efforts

  • Hold leaders accountable: Create a DE&I scorecard for leadership teams and make DE&I hiring a key performance indicator. Companies can also evaluate their hiring practises such as having a diverse interview panel, and review how managers mentor and develop diverse talent.
  • Develop representation metrics: Companies can start by looking at the attrition rate of women vs. the rate of men, and between different ethnic groups to help them identify the departments that require more attention.
