Studies have proven time and again that a diverse team is more creative, more innovative and more productive. When we cultivate a team of individuals with different backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and experiences, we expand the opportunity to discover new, better and more creative ways of doing business. What if your team isn’t diverse enough – and you can’t afford to hire anyone new? Here are three ways to diversify your team without hiring more employees:
- Host diverse focus groups to gain insights and gather feedback;
- Attend events to meet and network with people from different backgrounds; and
- Invite diversity experts to spend some time with you and your team to expand your views.
