Benefits of having a diverse workforce and international talent

As the national climate seems to grow more divisive, successful businesses see the value in thinking globally which is why organizations across numerous industries are embracing the benefits of a diverse workforce.

  • Attract and retain the best talent.

Making diversity an important part of the recruiting process will broaden your talent pool of prospective employees. Diversity, including diversity of gender, religion, and ethnicity, has been shown to improve retention and reduce the costs associated with employee turnover.

  • Productivity.

A 2018 study of 1000 companies across 12 countries by McKinsey and Co. found that companies with more ethnic and cultural diversity resulted in a 33 percent increase in performance.

  • Innovation.

A recent study by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) found that diversity increases financial performance. It looked at 1700 different companies across 8 different countries, with varying industries and company sizes. They have found that increasing diversity in management teams have 19% higher revenue due to innovation.

  • Problem Solving.

Each person’s unique problem-solving approach is based on a blend of our different backgrounds, experiences, personality and the different ways we process information. The more diverse your team is, the more opportunities you’ll have to approach a problem from different angles.

  • Local market knowledge and insight.

A multicultural and diverse workforce can give an organization an important edge when expanding into new markets. Often, a product or service needs to be adapted to succeed overseas.

            Even though, businesses have substantial reasons to go global when hiring and forming their teams, there are also challenges to be faced. Navigating visa requirements, employment laws, and the cost of accommodating workplace requirements can be difficult. Turning to a professional that offers recruitment and their expertise to navigate employment laws and visa requirements will help you fully understand your options. These professionals can help you find the right candidate for your team, resolve your labor bottleneck, and allow your company to become more profitable.
