News You Can Use: Diversity programs expanding

Diversity strategies are a hot topic, states new research from the Institute for Corporate Productivity. Nearly three quarters of organizations plan to expand their diversity programs, and nearly half already have a diversity strategy in place. For large companies (over 10,000 workers) that number dips to only 11% without a strategy already in place.

“Diversity programs have gone from nice-to-have to must-have for most firms,” said Jay Jamrog, i4cp senior vice president of research. “Strong diversity strategies help in the attraction and retention of top talent as well as customer relations, and companies not paying attention to that are missing the boat.”
