Here at Entelo, we understand the longevity of work and the importance of being authentic when approaching DE&I initiatives. A couple of weeks ago, we sponsored a webinar discussing meaningful and practical ways for enacting these initiatives organization-wide.
It's no secret that many companies struggle to nurture and promote diversity. As we see time and time again, diversity and its advancement are goals without easy solutions. Rather than be turned off by complexity and difficulty, companies and recruiters must approach diversity like they would any other issue, with determination, curiosity, and creativity. That’s what we’ve done here at Entelo, which is why diversity is one of our core tenets and its advancement is behind one of our flagship products.
Beyond the moral and ethical reasons, there are business considerations for why every company ought to make diversity a priority. Countless studies have shown that diversity initiatives improve morale, corporate culture, employee retention and recruitment, all of which increase a company’s competitive advantage.
