Diversity in the workplace: Finding the right employer for you
Diversity is good for business. Differences in culture, background, language, race, gender, education and more all influence the way teams perform. Indeed, a 2009 study of US companies found that organizations with more racial and gender diversity in their workforces do better on sales, customer numbers and other measures of business success. But despite the evidence, some firms are doing better than others at ensuring that their hiring practices and organizational culture support a more inclusive zeitgeist. So how can physics graduates find employers whose commitment to diversity goes beyond lip service? Find out in this issue, which also includes ten “signs of a supportive employer” and a few ideas about what to do if your working environment turns out to be less positive than you’d hoped.
