How important is diversity in your business?
Embracing people of various cultures, sexualities, ages and races has become the norm for many broker businesses.
“For a lot of people, diversity is just about gender or ethnicity, but actually it means a different way of thinking. It’s easy to improve people who think the same as me or share my mindset. But getting people who think differently helps improve my business. We can be more productive by finding ways to do things differently. Having different thought processes in the business is what’s important. “I’ve embraced this by having a diverse range of staff. I give them room to share their thoughts and contribute. It’s easier to have similar people in the business who offer the same ideas. Creating diversity in the workplace needs nurturing, and that takes time. You may have to work harder, but you become better.”
