360 diversity benefits
360 diversity gives you access to information on 6 recognised strands of diversity covering the 9 protected characteristics all in one place. Each strand has its own dedicated space, complete with sections on the workplace, general information and a forum. Here you can find up to date news, internal policies, events and much more. More still, the 360 café area combines the forums along with news and events highlights from each strand, enabling you to explore diversity in a holistic way.
360 diversity for your organisation and your employees
Equality and diversity makes good sense. Good business sense, in fact. Statistically, demonstrating total commitment to diversity is proven to engage consumers and employees into your organisation. And enhance your reputation in the process.
Did you know that some 74% of gay and 42% of straight people are less likely to be associated with organisations that hold negative views of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) people,* for example?
360 diversity enables you not only to achieve your legislative targets, but exceed them. 360 diversity will enhance your ability to manage your risk assessment regarding legal compliance, through training, informing staff and raising awareness about best practice diversity-related behaviour in the workplace. All this via a cost-effective practice model too. Introduce 360 diversity to complement your formal diversity-focused networking events, paper-based processes, and many of the other costs involved in communicating diversity to your employees. And with 360 diversity, you can communicate to your workforce as one, even across virtual teams and when geographically dispersed.
Align your employees with the diversity, cultures and values within your organisation and promote an environment through which employees feel valued.
