Data-driven diversity and inclusion

Using data to understand diversity and inclusion in your organization better.

The business case for diversity and inclusion is indisputable. Diverse and inclusive organizations achieve better results and have a higher capacity for innovation. In addition, these organizations are more attractive in the labor market, giving them an edge in attracting scarce talent. Based on this business case and the call from society to do the right thing, many organizations are working hard to better accommodate their diversity. But how do you start working on these themes as an organization? And how do you tackle this in a data-driven way?

Within AnalitiQs, what do we mean with diversity and inclusion?

Diversity is about the visible and invisible differences between people. The most well-known and commonly measured example is the difference between men and women. But other differences could be a person’s cultural background, sexuality, or disability. When conducting a survey, we often leave it up to the organization to decide which diversity dimensions they want to explore. This depends on available data and their diversity goals.

Inclusion is about how employees can be themselves in the workplace if they are valued for their unique qualities and characteristics and can express themselves. An organization with a high level of diversity, but a low level of inclusion, will not benefit from its diverse workforce. Among other work, AnalitiQs performs an annual benchmark on the degree of diversity and inclusion among the Dutch population. Click here to see the results.

Data-driven D&I maturity assessment

Understand diversity and inclusion through the Employee Journey. The Employee Journey consists of different phases, such as the application, start-up, and growth phases. The products and services AnalitiQs offers in diversity and inclusion are closely aligned with these different phases.

When an organization starts with diversity and inclusion, AnalitiQs recommends starting at the top of the Employee Journey, at Strategy and Leadership. Before working on diversity and inclusion, an organization must define diversity and inclusion and choose what diversity dimensions they wish to focus on first.

After this, AnalitiQs advises starting with a diversity and inclusion survey. The survey results give the organization their first insights, and it is even more apparent where the focus should be in the further Employee Journey.

Issues arise in different steps of the Employee Journey depending on the nature of the organization’s problem. Suppose this first analysis shows a problem within the organization regarding diversity. In that case, looking at the first and last steps in the Employee Journey (steps 1, 2, 3, and 8) is essential. If the analysis reveals a challenge primarily related to inclusion, then the middle steps in the organization should be looked at (steps 3 to 7).

Diversity at the Top prediction model

The diversity at the top of an organization often says something about the diversity in the rest of the organization. It is also a positive sign to potential employees that people from different backgrounds have equal opportunities to advance to senior management positions. Many organizations state in their diversity policy that they want to grow toward a (more) equal distribution in top management. Knowing whether enough women are advancing in an organization and whether goals are being met is an important issue. The ‘diversity at the top’ prediction model of AnalitiQs offers insight into this.
