Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) are critical to driving innovation and growth, as well as the long-term success. As companies continue to leverage digital transformation to gain a competitive advantage and market share, diverse voices are necessary for continued innovation. With diversity comes smarter and more creative ideas, better performance, and the added potential to appeal to a broader market. But diversity cannot be sustained without equity, inclusion and belonging — they all work together to create a culture where every person can thrive at work. Join Sue Collard, UKG’s VP of Strategy & Operations for Belonging, Diversity & Equity, to learn more about the business imperative around DEIB and the role each of us plays in creating an environment that sets a company and its customers up for future success.
