Untapping the True Potential of Belgian Workforce Diversity

Konstantinos Apostolatos Christophe Nauts Margot Bruynseels Judit David Benoit Deforche

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.
