Inclusion policies build business relationships
Organisations today to recognise and entrench diversity and inclusion in core values and across the entire business.
Diversity relates to any aspect of a person that makes them unique, embracing such traits as age, gender, physical and mental abilities, race or sexual orientation.
Inclusion relates to a work setting in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organisation’s success.
How to illustrate your approach to diversity and inclusion
There are a number of ways businesses can demonstrate their commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace. You can develop:
- Diversity inclusion action plans
- Accessibility action plans
- A page on your website about your commitment to diversity and inclusion
- Diversity and inclusion training for all staff
- Diversity training for your onboarding process
- A connection or membership of an institute such as the Diversity Council of Australia
atWork Australia can also help you incorporate diversity and inclusion when tendering for work. Whatever stage you’re at in the implementation of your business’s diversity and inclusion policy, we recommend speaking to one of our employment specialists who can provide more in-depth guidance on how to fully embrace and share your commitment to adopting an inclusive working environment.
