Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Untapping the True Potential of Belgian Workforce Diversity
Belgian society is becoming increasingly diverse, supported by ongoing efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). The same progress, however, is not reflected in the Belgian workplace, especially at the top.
Only half of employees today indicate that their company has DE&I programs in place, the effectiveness of which is questionable: Less than one third of targeted employees have benefited from current diversity programs in place. The existing disparity between diversity in Belgian society and the workforce represents a missed societal and economic opportunity for businesses. Action is required to drive real change, but there is no one-size-fits-all as the most effective initiatives differ by target group.
