Would you prefer to hire a team where all of them share the same experience, characteristics, culture and point of views? Although it is considerably easier to have this kind of team in place and their performance results will be much more predictable, but you are losing a huge potential, value proposition, innovation and creativity that can be obtained only by having a diversified team whether in terms of nationality or age or gender etc.
But is it enough to have a diversified team?
In fact, for those diverse groups to work most effectively, however, they need to be not only engaged in the work but also feel that the company respects their points of view.
The more each person in an organization feels welcomed, respected, supported and valued as a team member, the more he contributes toward the organization’s business results.
