Nia Joynson-Romanzina, Founder & Director, iCubed, states that it you don't think about diversity, you will risk being left behind.
Thus, companies that embrace diversity and inclusion in all aspects of their business statistically outperform their peers, according to Josh Bersin, a leading provider of research-based membership programs in human resources (HR), talent and learning.
- In addition, Joynson-Romanzina stated that leaders are the true drivers in an organisation. Organizational cultures are shaped by their leaders; Intentionally and unintentionally.
Their words, behavior, dress, and mannerisms are observed, emulated, and repeated. It’s up to each individual leader to decide whether he or she wants to be a good one.
The future organizations aspire leaders that know how to be power players. They will have the knowledge and skills to engage employees and foster loyalty, trust, and motivation.
- Including individual icebergs means opening the door to a diversity of perspectives.
In the economy of belonging, visible diversity is no longer enough. People nowadays, seek for the uniqueness of individuals and to capture the kaleidoscope of diverse perspectives.
There’s no such thing as non-diverse.
... Nia Joynson-Romanzina supported.
In addition, the Economy of Belonging adds value and optimizes operations.
Another feature in Economy of Belonging is that it relies on the ideas of the crowd. In other words, a diverse group always has more ideas to provide in comparison to a homogenous group.
Finally, the Economy of Belonging eliminates risk and enhances risk management.
The elimination of risk comes as a result since a diversity group will be able to better-identify risks and perception and find a solution easier.
