The benefits of designing an inclusive workplace

Inclusive design is not just a trend that will be going off the scene in a few month’s time – far from it. It has the power to improve businesses and their employees. You might think this is a far-fetched statement, but we have got several benefits to prove it. Read here to find out what an inclusive office design is.

Increased employee engagement in an inclusive workspace

When an environment that supports its employees is created, they will feel valued and like the company appreciates them. Employees thrive in this atmosphere, and can significantly impact productivity and the feel of the whole business. This turns into a golden circle – as the employees feel valued, the harder they work and are willing to put the effort in, the more results you will see as the revenue increases.

An inclusive workplace also helps to build trust, as employees don’t mind showing their more vulnerable side and can express their opinions freely. This is when the most innovative ideas are created and can take your company to the next level, whether this is new concepts, product ideas, or campaigns. 

Customers with a sense of belonging can help boost confidence and performance by 56% according to lumapps.com. By integrating the inclusivity concept into your office design, you can almost guarantee that you will see the difference in your employees and their work performance.

Better reputation in an inclusive workspace

Not only will you become more well-known for looking after, and caring for your employees but it shows that your company is actively embracing diversity and is dedicated to standing against discrimination. This helps when you are looking to recruit new talent, as the best talent will want to work for you, and also your clients will be more impressed by your ethics as a business which could give you a competitive advantage.

Increased ethnic diversity in an inclusive workspace

Embracing ethnic diversity helps bring different aspects to your business, whether this is different cultures or even different perceptions. These can help move your business out of the ‘safe’ zone, and get it doing perhaps things it wouldn’t feel comfortable doing.

Attract better talent and retention in an inclusive workspace

Not only do you want to get the best candidates you can – the most highly skilled and most suited for your applications – but that is when you are truly looking for new talent. Having an inclusive workplace will also help you retain that specialist talent, as employees enjoy their work experience and feel safe and valued there. This helps avoid the significant cost involved with finding and hiring new employees and then having to train them up.
