Diversity can give your software company an edge in an increasingly competitive talent recruiting environment. Creativity in your workplace and overall productivity may also increase.
86% of hiring managers and technical recruiters feel it’s a challenge to find and hire software engineers, a survey reveals.
Today, over 3 in 4 job seekers consider diversity when deciding whether to accept a job offer. And almost a third wouldn’t apply to a job at a company where diversity is lacking. It comes as no surprise since more and more people have started to appreciate the value of diversity in their society.
So making your team more diverse can be vital in attracting top tech talents.
CREATIVITY AND PROBLEM-SOLVING
Creative thinking is essential when solving complex problems during the development, testing, or implementation stages. Innovative, out-of-the-box thinking may allow companies to offer winning solutions where conventional methods fail.
Diverse teams bring to the table various experiences and skills that will be hugely important when solving problems.
Diversity boosts innovation and creativity because people from all walks of life refer to their unique experiences and knowledge to spark new, innovative ideas.
Workplace diversity increases organizations’ morale and creates efficiency and effectiveness.
