Diversity Recruitment

Posted On Jan 6th 2012, By Hamid Ali, Fujairah, UAE

It goes without saying that variety is the spice of life. And as a growing number of progressive businesses are now realising, variety in workforce can also provide the cornerstone to a high-performing organisation. As a direct consequence, more and more corporations and their shareholders have stated to realise that a diverse employee base can positively impact their company’s bottom line. 

The term "Workforce Diversity" has become increasingly ubiquitous in today\'s business lexicon and it refers to policies and practices that seek to include people within a workforce who are considered to be, in some way, different from those in the prevailing constituency. Social demographics in 21st century business have been flipped. Women and minority groups are now recognized as a critical part of the workforce mix. In addition, today’s workforce is made up of four different generations – traditionalists, boomers, gen Xers and millennials – all with their own ways of working, living and looking at the world.

Keeping such a varied workforce actively engaged is key to ensuring high levels of productivity, innovation and service. As a result, the issue of workforce diversity has become an essential business concern and today companies are holistically involving their HR departments to secure a future that has diversity embedded into the culture. For progressive organisations, workforce diversity takes a step further into their commercial decision-making and strategic planning. Diversity-inclusion in the workplace is a commitment to recognizing, appreciating and retaining the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique, in an atmosphere that champions individual and collective achievement. 

At Resourcing Partners, we describe workforce diversity as an indigenous force that has a direct impact on all aspects of human resource management including recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation and benefits, retention and career development and strongly holds that by focusing on innovation and having diversity, companies can foster creativity and grow business by building diverse range of products and services that meet the needs of very diverse customer base. We embrace diversity and we are committed to promote the benefits of diversity in all of our business activities. Moreover, we consistently work towards widening our sourcing media to ensure as diverse a candidate base as possible so that our clients meet their own diversity targets.

Indeed, the business proposition for diversity and inclusion is that it really impacts the bottom line and it is pretty obvious that companies that diversify their workforces will have a distinct competitive advantage over those that don’t. After all, if a company’s talent pool is reflective of the marketplace itself, it can better understand and sell products and services to a more diverse customer base – which really explains why so many firms are placing diversity at the heart of their people management efforts.
