Diversity And Inclusion Matters To The Workforce Of The Future
The idea of diversity and inclusion has permeated the world of business. Everyone seems to be talking about it in the context of establishing a society where traditionally underrepresented groups get their fair share of opportunities. As the world moves ahead, the workplace will evolve — not just in terms of technological revolution, but also in terms of its human composition.
Over a third of today's workforce — more than 56 million people — is of the millennial and post-millennial generation, or Generation Z. By 2025, this group will make up nearly 75% of the workforce. Once we wrap our heads around these staggering numbers, it only makes sense to examine the impact this largest (and growing) segment will have on the future workplace, especially in the realm of diversity and inclusion.
