If you’re not already thinking about how to increase diversity in your top team, you should be. Some of the world’s most successful organisations know that teams from different backgrounds and perspectives are sharper and more innovative, and perform better for their clients than teams who look, think and feel the same. And rather than producing flash-in-the-pan success, this type of mix is a recipe for sustainable improvements over the long term.
But if you, like us, spend most of your life running a business or heading up a large department, you probably don’t have much spare time to think about diversity. So we’ve produced this guide purely for busy executives who want to decipher why this matters to their organisation’s ability to grow and evolve, and who need to talk to other people about it, but perhaps aren’t sure how.
We wanted to do it in a way that doesn’t turn it into a chore. The book unfolds in ten simple chapters, each of which shouldn’t take much more than a minute to read – but behind each chapter there’s a wealth of information, with Green Park’s suggestions for further reading at the end.
Failure to capture talent from the widest possible pool could cost you dearly. There is a myth of lack of talent; nothing could be further from the truth. There’s no shortage of high-calibre candidates from under-represented groups, but sourcing them often requires the focus, market intelligence and reach that only an expert executive search firm can provide.
With this is mind, we’ve created Green Park Diversity Analytics, chaired by Trevor Phillips, a research and advisory body, which uses unique quantitative modelling to analyse the executive labour market by specific dimensions of diversity. Our methodology can help us to identify gaps and source the best candidates for your team, bringing results that are quicker, less intrusive and more accurate than anything currently in the diversity field.
We hope you find this guide helpful.
