‘There’s inherent value in a diversified workforce. Diversity gives you access to a greater range of talent and broader world-views that would otherwise be completely missed. This provides insight into the needs and motivations of your whole client base, not just a particular segment of it.’ Julie (Jules) Carman from the Sage The Practice of Now 2020 Report
There are no shortage of research that suggests #diversity of thought and opinion, or being around people who are from different cultures/backgrounds, empowers teams to be more creative, diligent and hard-working. The building of diverse teams/workforce is key for the future success of any business (particular for #accountingandaccountants and other professional service sectors) and this can only be achieved by having a clearly defined and lived to common purpose and hiring people who will thrive under the core values of the business.
