Top 10 Diversity and Inclusion Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

For a long time, diversity and inclusion were seen as mere compliance requirements, but now the business world has changed. Today more than ever, organizations are focusing on curating effective diversity and inclusion measures as a core principle to build a better employee experience workplace culture. With an eye on the different minority groups, genders and generations, progressive company values, and equitable work practices, organizations have begun to refresh their existing manager training or on-boarding programs to include Diversity and Inclusion values.

As automation and new advances in technologies transform jobs and redefine the nature of work, organizations have a unique opportunity to build new pathways to careers, establish better learning systems, and create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces. New and emerging technologies, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR), streamline and innovate the talent process and help HR managers become aware of potential biases in a safe learning environment. Additionally, many organizations are also rolling out intelligent assistants or chatbots to handle the early stages of employee recruitment, answer mundane HR questions, or personalize learning experiences. Another important technology that has proved to be a driving force is Big Data that provides data-driven insights, allowing organizations to think, influence processes, and ultimately change behaviours.
