This abstract is summarized by IPR from the original journal article published on Kisi Blog.
Kisi completed a study of the four major elements of diversity: ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and disabilities, cognitive disabilities and age, to understand the state of workplace diversity and the different types we encounter in the professional world.
· For every 100 men promoted and hired to manager, only 72 women are promoted and hired.
· High-performance organizations are 37% more likely to hire people with a cognitive disability because they are good talent matches for open positions.
· LGBT-friendly workplaces lead to improved health, increased job satisfaction, better relationships with co-workers and supervisors, and greater work commitment among LGBT workers.
