Diversity at work is an initiative by the Labour Foundation, the national consultative body for employers’ federations and trade union confederations, and is financed by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment and the Labour Foundation.
the business case
A diverse workforce can contribute to more profit, productivity and a positive image. It offers access to (top) talents, customer groups and new markets. A prerequisite for utilising these opportunities is an inclusive company culture in which every employee feels recognized.
An inclusive labour market
Everyone has the right to equal opportunities and treatment. This entails the full labour participation of every citizen, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, age or sexual orientation. The pursuit of inclusion is a matter of corporate social responsibility.
