Diversity in the workplace has been an important theme in many organizations for decades, but the increase in the number of millennials in the workplace makes the topic more important than ever. As the most diverse generation in the workplace, millennials are forcing companies to rethink how diversity affects the workplace and their business endeavors. Fortunately, there has been plenty of research showing how diversity can bring huge benefits to the workplace. While it does present some challenges requiring companies to make significant changes to their existing practices, embracing the long-term advantages of diversity makes the decision easier. Diversity drives innovation In today's rapidly changing economic environment, organizations that cannot innovate quickly to keep pace will struggle to succeed. Having the best and brightest minds might sound like an ideal strategy, but if all of those minds think and behave in the same way, they will quickly fall into the same predictable patterns, which can be devastating. Culturally diverse workforces do not create a difference for the sake of difference; instead, they industry mailing list new ways of thinking that can counteract the harmful effects of conformity and groupthink. Research shows that diverse teams consistently outperform homogeneous teams in problem-solving. It turns out that being similar to others can lead people to assume they share common experiences, ideas, and perspectives, shutting down entire lines of discussion. One study even showed that participants were more likely to consider conflicting opinions when they came from people they thought were different from themselves. In fact, simply adding diversity to a group seems to make people more likely to believe there are differences worth discussing. For these reasons, diverse teams are more likely to generate new ideas and creative problem solutions. They take fewer assumptions for granted and draw inspiration from a wider range of experiences, leading to the kind of dynamic innovation needed to succeed in today's economy.
