Employers who want the competitive advantage know that they must go above and beyond the requirements of the law and create an inclusive environment where the needs of all employees can be met. An organization that is truly inclusive focuses on diversity in every nook and cranny of its organization. For example, HR policies regarding flexibility are in line with employee needs, benefits programs match the needs of the workforce, performance management rewards those who celebrate inclusiveness, the business seeks diversity in its pool of vendors, and more.
