European Workforce Diversity: Promising Trends, Thorny Challenges
A report from Axiom’s European office outlines the significant progress being made in women’s career advancement, pay equality and other areas, as well as challenges associated with a multi-generational workforce and “diversity fatigue.”
“Many European organizations should be commended for the progress made in promoting diversity and inclusion. Many, but certainly not all. Furthermore, some new challenges are being added to the list of traditional barriers to greater diversity and inclusion. These challenges are difficult, but certainly not insurmountable.
A deeper understanding of best practices and dynamic trends can help executives make informed decisions about where to invest their time and effort in promoting diversity and inclusion within their own workforce. Given the overwhelming evidence of the value of diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives, this isn’t just about compliance or good corporate citizenship. It is about improved performance and a better workplace and life for all employees.”
