9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

A diverse and inclusive workforce is comprised of people of different backgrounds who are valued for their contributions. This can provide employers with a competitive advantage by bringing new ideas, fresh perspectives, and an engaged workforce. For these reasons, it’s important to think about how you hire, treat, develop, promote, and provide benefits to employees and whether those practices foster inclusion or exclusion. Here are some ideas for improving diversity and inclusion at your company: #1: Start at the top. Make sure each manager, senior manager, and executive is responsible for inclusion and hold them accountable during performance evaluations. Discuss the issue during leadership meetings and share feedback from employees. To demonstrate the importance of diversity and inclusion within your company, consider including it in your employer branding. #2: Expand recruiting. Use a variety of sources to find potential job candidates. Understand which groups are underrepresented (e.g., people of color, employees with disabilities, etc.) in your workforce and seek out community organizations and schools to help you recruit a...

Purpose in Action: How to Promote the Inclusion of Women in Leadership

Purpose in Action: How to Promote the Inclusion of Women in Leadership

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Today, women make up more than half of the national labor force. They earn almost 60 percent of all graduate degrees and 60 percent of master’s degrees.1 At S&P 500 companies, women make up 44 percent the overall workforce.2 But in the top ranks of the corporate world, it’s a different story. Women comprise only 21 percent of the board seats at those same S&P 500 companies, and only 6 percent are CEOs. In the legal field, 45 percent of associates are women but only 22 percent are partners.3 Women of color face even steeper challenges, holding only 4.7 percent of executive- or senior-level positions at S&P 500 companies.4 In 2017, after the departure of Ursula Burns as CEO of Xerox, not a single Fortune 500 company was led by an African American woman.5 These numbers might seem bleak, but when I started my career decades ago, the disparity was even greater. The good news: we are making progress! Nonetheless, we have a long way to go to achieve...

ADP’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion Highlighted by Top 25 Ranking on Forbes “America’s Best Employers for Diversity” List

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Numerous studies have shown that companies with more diverse teams have stronger financial performance. According to McKinsey & Company, companies that exhibit gender and ethnic diversity are respectively 21 percent and 33 percent more likely to outperform those that don’t. Further, innovation requires different thinking. It takes people of different backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities to bring new perspectives to the table that fuel new strategies, and solutions to affect change. At ADP®, we know that attracting and retaining diverse talent is critical to our growth and we strive to ensure that our workplace is inclusive and values the contribution of every individual. Today, I’m proud to say that Forbes recognized our commitment to diversity by ranking ADP as one of “America’s Best Employers for Diversity.” In its first-ever ranking of the top 250 employers working to incorporate diversity and inclusion measures, ADP ranked number 21 and stands as the highest-ranked New Jersey-based company. The ranking is based, in part, on survey results from 30,000 U.S. employees who were asked...
