NEW REPORT: Company Best Practices

NEW REPORT: Company Best Practices

The Impact Seat’s new report, Best Practices for Diversity & Inclusion: How Does Your Company Stack Up? is now available. Access your copy of the Executive Summary here.

Our research identified 149 current diversity and inclusion (D&I) best practices of leading U.S. firms. The data show that across all companies there are common practices and innovative practices, and that companies vary in the degree to which D&I practices are embedded in the company DNA.

From our analysis, we’ve built a Diversity & Inclusion Best Practices Framework on three categories and nineteen practice areas. The Framework delivers a comprehensive, strategic roadmap for implementation of diversity and inclusion efforts at any firm. Contact us for more information on an audit and gap analysis of D&I practices for your company .  

A strategic approach to D&I practice is emerging for U.S. companies – but holistic, value-building management systems that deliver performance while also contributing social benefits are rare. Most firms are making some efforts towards D&I, largely centered on legal compliance. However, leaders in the field have moved beyond that 80s mode to see that diversity, well managed, can create vibrant teams, engaged employees, and satisfied customers.
