Creating Inclusive Workplace Opportunities for All

diverse group of people

Attracting talent, optimising productivity, increasing retention and fostering an inclusive work culture are equally critical to achieving sustainable growth in any organisation. Our 2024 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in IT report aims to shed light on the strategies, challenges and successes of the workplace that reflects and celebrates the richness of human diversity.

Overall, experiences with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) collected from the accounts of IT employees highlight the complexities of DEI initiatives in the workplace. It’s evident that while many see the value and importance of these programmes, implementing them in a way that feels inclusive and effective for everyone – and clearly communicating those benefits to employees – remains a challenge for many organisations.

TEKsystems Recommendations for Implementing a Successful DEI Strategy

Work from where you are. When you first start out, the task can be overwhelming. You can start by focusing on workplace diversity and equality. Recruit and retain people of diverse backgrounds and experiences and, most importantly, set goals for increased representation across various demographics.

Cultivate the right mindset. Enroll a diverse group of stakeholders in decision-making, fostering open dialogue among all employees about their priorities and creating an inclusive workplace

Evaluate processes. Examine and dismantle unintentional processes and norms that may hinder equitable access to opportunities within your diversity, equity and inclusion strategies.

Secure senior leader support. Ensure sustained commitment by securing support from senior leaders. Diversity, equity and inclusion should rank as top priorities, treated on par with other strategic business imperatives.

Extend beyond the organisation. Align with external partners who share your vision of workplace equality and diversity in tech, actively involving your team in community engagement to contribute to a positive culture.
