Walking the Walk on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – New Jersey Business Magazine

Research shows that diverse companies attract the most qualified employees, foster greater innovation and outperform competitors. 
Having DEI embedded in company culture is incredibly important in recruiting and retaining top talent. Surveys show that 67% of jobseekers view a company’s diversity as one of the main factors they consider. Breaking down the data, diversity is even more important to Black (89%), Asian (80%) and Latinx (70%) applicants. 
Companies that value DEI are also more successful. A 2018 study by the Harvard Business Review found that the most diverse companies were also the most innovative and were able to market a greater range of products to consumers. In fact, companies that are more diverse earned 19% more in innovation revenues.
