Shrm 2013 survey findings diversity inclusion v5

  1. 1. SHRM Survey Findings: Diversity and Inclusion April 8, 2014
  2. 2. • Who is responsible for implementing and leading diversity initiatives in the workplace? More than three-fifths (64%) of organizations reported that HR is responsible for implementing diversity initiatives, followed by president/CEO (26%). HR (59%), president/CEO (25%), and senior management (21%) are most frequently responsible for leading diversity initiatives. • Are organizations using internal groups (e.g., diversity committees, diversity councils, diversity advisory boards) as a way to focus on diversity? Only 17% of organizations reported using internal groups; among them, larger organizations were three times as likely as small organizations to utilize these groups (31% compared with 10%). One-half (50%) of organizations that use these groups reported that they augment their organization’s business efforts. • What percentage of organizations have staff dedicated exclusively to diversity? Over the past eight years, fewer organizations reported having staff exclusively dedicated to diversity. This percentage increased from 13% in 2011 to 15% in 2013. The 2011 data come from SHRM Survey Findings: An Examination of Organizational Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion (SHRM, 2011). • What percentage of organizations have sexual orientation discrimination and gender identity/expression policies? Overall, more than three-fifths (64%) of organizations reported having a formal (written) or informal policy that addresses sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace. Only one-fifth (24%) of organizations reported having a formal (written) or informal policy that addresses gender identity and/or gender expression. Diversity and Inclusion Survey ©SHRM 2014 2 Key Findings
  3. 3. • The U.S. population is becoming more diverse as a whole, and consequently, so is the workplace. Census data show that minorities constitute more than one-third of the population, and their share is growing faster than the nonminority segment. This basic demographic shift—coupled with greater public advocacy and awareness concerning differences in ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation—has magnified the need for diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace. • Quite often, responsibility for developing and implementing these practices is given to human resource departments. If an HR professional is drafting a set of diversity and inclusion initiatives for the first time, he or she may consider tying these programs to staffing. More than half (57%) of HR professionals say their recruiting strategies are designed to help increase diversity in their organization, and nearly two out of five (38%) say their retention strategies are designed to help retain a diverse workforce. • Devoting staff specifically to diversity and inclusion may not be viable for all organizations, particularly because only larger companies tend to have resources for those positions. However, there are many options for HR professionals to pursue. While 15% of organizations have dedicated staff members for diversity and inclusion, 17% also employ a volunteer approach and have an advisory group/committee made up of existing staff, and 31% of organizations overall provide some form of diversity and inclusion training.
