A recent McKinsey report suggested that gender-diverse businesses are 25% more likely to outperform their peers, while ethnically diverse businesses are 36% more likely. Yet, only 6% of the top management positions are held by those from a Black, Asian or ethnic minority heritage, and less than 30% are held by women.
Among the disabled community, only around 30% are likely to be employed as managers, directors or senior officials.
Managers looking to improve their workforce diversity therefore need to look at their hiring processes to ensure they are as inclusive as possible.
