Why is inclusion at work important for Australian Organisations?

· 150 words, 1 minute read

✔ Because employees want their workplace to be diverse and inclusive.

✔ Because it benefits everyone.

✔ Because it boosts performance and wellbeing

When organisations have taken action to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace, a similar proportion of LGBTIQ+ workers and non-LGBTIQ+ workers were very satisfied with their jobs – and significantly more satisfied than those in organisations where no D&I action is being taken. This is also the case for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander workers and non-Indigenous workers, workers with and without disability, culturally diverse and nonculturally diverse workers, and men and women. 1
