Embracing Diversity and Inclusion: Building a Stronger Workplace at Lyceum Insurance

Maintaining a sense of open-minded acceptance and interest in employees who have knowledge and experience from a unique and different point of view is nothing but helpful to any organization seeking to reach their potential. Divergent thinking, diverse backgrounds, and unique points of view helps avoid the common trap of ‘groupthink’ and empowers a collective ability to creatively solve problems, tackle challenges, and find new and innovative solutions.

Some common challenges to embracing diversity can include discrimination from other employees, subconscious bias from management, or a collective mindset of resisting change and staying stuck in the same traditional methods already used before. By standing up against discrimination when it happens, you can help cultivate an inclusive environment for your team or coworkers. You can also stop and contemplate where you may be unwittingly engaging in unconscious bias; by being proactively self-aware, you can help minimize these hidden issues while also making sure you’re open to change and adaptation.

Promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace brings numerous benefits to both employees and the organization as a whole. An inclusive work environment enhances creativity and innovation by leveraging diverse perspectives. It also leads to improved employee engagement, satisfaction, and retention. When employees feel valued and respected, they are more likely to contribute their best work. Did you know that organizations in the top quartile for ethnic diversity have a +36% likelihood of financial outperformance?
