By measuring diversity a diversity baseline is established, enabling you to track changes to diversity across time, and to evaluate the impact of your strategies.

Use Diversity Atlas to measure the following:


Your overall diversity

How diverse is your organistion, and in what way? Survey factors such as gender, age, ethnicity, language, religion, disability, education and more. Generate a comprehensive data profile, along with a unique weighted cultural diversity index, which you can use to track changes to diversity over time.

The diversity gap

Once data is collected, understand your diversity gap. The diversity gap analysis takes many forms, depending on your needs. For example, compare the difference between your diversity profile, and that of the community, client or customer base. What are the overlaps, and what are the gaps? Use these insights to shape recruitment, and engagement. What about the diversity gap between levels of influence within the organisation, ie between the leadership, middle management, and entry level staff?
