Your Tech Business Can’t Compete Without a

Diverse, Inclusive Workplace

Let’s Embark on your DEI Journey Together.

Technology companies focus on developing solutions that anticipate and solve the evolving needs of your customers. These customers represent a diverse base of users with different experiences, opinions, and backgrounds. To successfully meet this challenge, you must hire workforces that reflect the unique needs of each customer segment or risk becoming irrelevant to them.

Equitable hiring drives tangible benefits according to a BCG Study report noting significant correlation between innovation and diverse management teams. In fact, the report found “companies that reported above-average management diversity reported innovation revenue 19% higher than companies with below-average leadership diversity45% of total revenue versus just 26%.” Yet, some of the most respected tech companies have faced high-profile allegations of systemic racism.
