THE BRITISH DIVERSITY AWARDS

INCLUDING THE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION POWER 100

Honouring the most exceptional organisations and leadership within the diversity and inclusion sector.

The Exceptional Organisations and Leadership British Mark is both a seal of approval and the benchmark achievement for the diversity sector’s highest-performing organisations. It is a standard of excellence, an agreed rating for companies who are doing something exceptionally well.

In any society the presence of highly successful organisations able to create and exercise a wealth of power and influence is a fundamental necessity. These are the innovators and game changers who, either through position or personality, exercise a significant power that influences events and sets parameters in the conduct of their organisation, the climate of political debate and the shaping of new ideas.

The British Diversity Awards and The Exceptional Organisations and Leadership publication provide an invaluable insight into those companies who have adopted truly innovative strategies and are pushing forward the boundaries of diversity and corporate inclusion.  The awards will showcase the most ambitious, successful and innovative diversity practices within the UK and will highlight the exceptional organisations and leadership teams powering the rise of this movement for change.

DISCRIMINATORY PRACTICES AT WORK ARE COSTING THE UK ECONOMY £127 BILLION IN LOST OUTPUT EACH YEAR

More than a quarter (28%) of UK business leaders said increasing diversity and inclusion was a top priority for them in the first half of 2020 in order to improve workplace culture and that most businesses are actively working to improve their workplace culture to seem more appealing to employees.

Nearly two-thirds of all businesses reported that diversity, with regards to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and ability, had already increased in their business over the past three years. The aim now is to further improve diversity among the workforce to increase productivity, encourage innovation and boost company reputation.

Companies in the top quartile of gender diversity on executive teams are 25% more likely to have above-average profitability than peer organizations in the lower quartiles. Companies with more than 30% women on their executive teams were more likely to outperform those with fewer women and companies with greater ethnic and cultural diversity were 36% more likely to outperform peers in the fourth quartile in profitability.
