What progress have we made on Diversity, Equality and Inclusion?
Companies have spent millions and invested huge amounts of time on Diversity, Equality & Inclusion (DEI) initiatives and programmes in recent years. Although improvements have been made, over a third of employees under 35 are likely to leave their company due to the lack of inclusion in the workplace. Employees want to see DEI drive systemic change with 46% agreeing that companies need to do more.
Kantar’s Inclusion Index measures and tracks Inclusion in 12 of the worlds biggest markets and in 24 industries, providing clear benchmarks and metrics for inclusion in key sectors and markets.
Marketing, PR, Advertising and Market Research, for example, scores below the global inclusion average at 54%, ten points behind the top-scoring sector, Personal Services, which includes hairdressing and beauty.
Our Inclusion Index 2022 looks at the global state of inclusion, revealing why progress in inclusion is stalling, what organisations need to do to dial up inclusion and employee expectations on DEI in 2022 and beyond.
