jml Diversity & Inclusion Consultancy's new-look website is an ideal solution for organisations seeking to develop diverse and inclusive work places
February 24 2014
jml wants to encourage organisations to take a more holistic approach to diversity, to see beyond the differences and concentrate much more on the process of inclusivity. To this end it has revamped its website to make this process easier to navigate.
"Encouraging diversity in organisations is in itself not enough" says Grainne Suter of jml Diversity & Inclusion Training Consultancy. "Organisations need to learn how to engage and manage that diversity to truly release its potential."
The commercial benefits are very real as research indicates that discretionary effort increases when people feel involved and fulfilled.
"D & I is so much more than meeting legal requirements, true inclusivity permeates through the organisation. However, it needs commitment and action if it is to be truly authentic.
We work with organisations to help them to go beyond the obvious and to think through how to fully embed Diversity and Inclusion throughout the work lifecycle."
We firmly believe that diversity and inclusion is rooted in culture change and requires an inclusive leadership approach that ensures it filters through to every aspect of the business", says Grainne.
"Fostering inclusive behaviour requires managers who are self-aware and recognise the need to develop a leadership approach that is flexible, considered and transparent." It has, says Grainne, got to cover all aspects of their behaviour.
People want to be valued, included, developed and inspired. If managers can foster a sense of worth in their teams, the teams will give of their best and the business benefits will follow."
