Today we are working in a more diverse society where the challenge to be more culturally competent is ever-present. Employees come from a variety of different backgrounds, races and cultures, and this can lead to unfortunate misunderstandings, biases, and ultimately unequal treatment in the workplace. It is important for people to work together to ensure that their diverse workplace cultures maintain employee wellbeing through openness, safety and sensitivity in embracing the complexities of people difference. These challenges cannot be met by lip-service and tokenistic box-ticking exercises, but through genuine commitment to establishing inclusivity and dignity for all at work.
Benefits of Workplace Consultancy
It can help reduce conflict through early intervention work such as independent impartial facilitation and guidance from external consultancy. Organisations can be helped to re-examine their work practices and put in place effective systems for supporting a diverse staff team at all levels. Consultancy can help organisations recognise that diversity in the workplace is not simply about fulfilling legal compliance and adhering to legislation but making real investment in the health of its most valuable asset, the workforce. Investing in workplace consultancy can bring cost-productive gains and avoid lengthy and expensive complaints procedures from marginalised and unhappy staff. Consultancy can enable workers to have a better understanding of how organisational systems work and how personal and group culture can influence work dynamics for better or worse.
