Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is becoming an imperative business goal. Discrimination and harassment can lead to dysfunctional work environments and can impact a company’s bottom line as well as making it more difficult to attract and retain the best talent.
Recognizing this, many HR departments use inclusion software to analyze their workforce and to identify whether inclusion goals are being met. The software aims to reduce bias in recruitment (conscious or unconscious), providing analytics on diversity to support hiring decisions and addressing talent pipelines to ensure that diverse candidates are supported to meet career goals.
This helps to identify insufficiently inclusive cultures in departments and companies and addresses issues such as a lack of knowledge by employees of diversity and inclusion policies.
The most important aspect of inclusion software is its ability to provide data and analytics on employee make-up to show where improvements need to be made even in companies that believe that they support diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
