Diversity is an evolving culture and value in the workplace. But more than a battle cry, true diversity presents numerous opportunities for businesses, as well as individuals to grow.
When employees from all racial, ethnical, religious, political or social backgrounds work together, they contribute various skills and competencies to the company. Companies, then, draw on such diversity to better respond to emerging trends in their industry.
