Leveraging Cognitive Diversity Management

 

Leveraging cognitive diversity by creating enduring solutions mindful of the cultural, gender and generational nuances among global talent

 

Benefits of diversity in organisations

  • Diverse teams are more productive and perform better
  • Diverse teams inspire creativity, and drive innovation and growth
  • Local market knowledge and insight makes a business more competitive and profitable
  • Greater opportunity for personal and professional growth
  • A diverse skills base allows an organization to offer a broader and more adaptable range of products and services
  • Cultural sensitivity, insight, and local knowledge means higher quality, targeted marketing
  • A culturally diverse talent pool allows an organization to attract and retain the best talent for the future

To truly leverage diverse talent to gain the above positive benefits for the business, organisations need to have managers who have cross-cultural competency – the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations. Without this capability, diversity can lead to miscommunication, misunderstanding and conflict eroding the positive potential of diversity
