WORKPLACE DIVERSITY MEANS GOOD BUSINESS.
Workplace diversity is good for your people and great for business. A Gartner study predicts through 2022, 75% of companies with diverse and inclusive decision-making teams will exceed their financial targets. And in PwC’s 18th Annual Global Survey, 85% of CEOs said a diversified and inclusive workplace population improved their bottom line.
Study after study has shown that diversity promotes greater employee engagement and boosts business. But building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce is more than who you hire: It’s about creating a culturally vibrant workplace where each and every employee feels safe, accepted, and valued.
Inspired workplaces embrace diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.
Building a diverse culture isn’t easy.
Diversity initiatives require active participation from the C-suite down. They entail continuous education, ongoing awareness, and resolute commitment.
At Catapult, we reach across the broader business community to help employers advance diversity initiatives. We work with employers on multiple fronts to build inclusive corporate cultures that reflect the changing face of today’s workforce. By doing so, we provide support that meets your organization at its own unique starting point.
Our approach includes:
Enroll individual employees in our enlightening, live, interactive 2-hour virtual overview of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Or dive deeper into specific issues such as microaggression, empowering women, engaging disabled employees, recruiting, and more in our new webinar series. Attendees gain a heightened self-awareness as the experienced instructors provide strategies for creating an inclusive workplace culture. Through self-assessment, lively discussions, small-group breakout exercises, and interactive technology, this course teaches skills and understanding necessary to build an inclusive workforce to facilitate organizational success.
If a group of employees could benefit from any of our diversity courses, we can book a special training session and tailor the content to your workplace needs and schedule.
Our diversity specialists work directly with your leadership team to build a more diverse workforce. In this longer-term engagement, they’ll moderate planning sessions with executives, provide training and education to employees, formulate ongoing plans, collect employee feedback, examine and evaluate company policies, and help you measure the success of your efforts.
Learn more about your employees’ views on diversity through a customized employee survey. We’ll develop the questionnaire, administer the survey, compile the results, and provide a snapshot of your employees’ opinions, as well as compare your results to nationwide surveys.
We host a quarterly diversity roundtable for our member organizations. Like-minded professionals join together in a discussion moderated by a diversity expert. Attendees share personal experiences, discuss topical issues, and offer advice from the employers’ perspective.
Catapult provides on-site mentors and advisors for employees new to the HR team or function. Our coaches guide and advise on strategic HR initiatives—including diversity, equity, and inclusion—to help team members gain confidence and skill in their role. Learn more.
