Why is diversity important in the workplace?

Diversity in the workplace is incredibly important – the world around us is made up of people from all walks of life, and the most successful organisations embrace this within their culture. If we have a diverse workforce at all levels of seniority, we are in the best possible position to be able to effectively relate to all sorts of different clients. The Cushman & Wakefield Apprenticeship programme is a great example of a firm building diversity into their recruitment pipeline, to help to create a more diverse future workforce. Embracing diversity also helps all of our colleagues to feel supported, improving our retention rate and creating a happier, balanced workforce! We have a long way to go to achieve true diversity in Real Estate, but it is so important that we all work together to embrace this change through initiatives such as Cushman & Wakefield’s Inspire programme. Whether it’s an issue that you feel affects you personally or not, everyone should be challenged to get involved.
