Recent statistics on diversity in the workplace don’t lie: inclusivity is good for business. Here’s why: Imagine you finally find the perfect job candidate after what feels like a marathon of a search. It feels like a match made in heaven, but instead of snatching up your offer, they just…walk away. 🚶‍♀️💨 But rather than […]
