A global diversity dividend

Human capital trends 2013


In the midst of ongoing global expansion and a worldwide shortage of critical talent, companies are stepping up efforts – at very different speeds and levels of investment – to recruit and retain a workforce diverse in both demographics and ideas.

The business case for diversity has been echoing in boardrooms and through every level of organizations. In 2013 companies are renewing their focus and increasing their investments to create diverse workforces. But questions remain: will a stronger focus on diversity deliver results in developed markets and build momentum in growth markets? If so, how quickly?

Corporate diversity initiatives depend heavily on where they are being implemented. As corporations address the unique workforce demands of mature markets, tailor efforts to growth markets, and create original approaches in emerging economies, they are producing a diverse portfolio of diversity initiatives – often within the same company.
