The 2016 Rio Olympic Games showed the world how incredible American athletes can be – winning 121 medals. Perhaps the most striking observation about the U.S. team was its multicultural nature. If there ever was a stereotypical American look, it has dissolved over the years and the country is better off as a result.
Of course, many Olympic sports are based on teams – not unlike a corporation, reminding us that the multicultural U.S. triumph which was the Rio Olympics can be a guide for how to build better corporations.
Harvard Business Review surveyed 1,800 professionals and showed companies with more diverse management are more innovative and perform better than their peers, confirming that it's not just Olympic athletes who can benefit from this effect. Similar research has shown a direct link between increased diversity and similar levels of creativity and ease in hiring talent.
Yet, with all this research to support diversity, many were quite shocked last year when it was revealed the combined black workforces of many of the world's largest tech companies could fit on a single jumbo jet. Once the news came out, the tech industry became center-stage for increasing workplace diversity.
This is the reason TMCnet launched the 2017 TMCnet Workplace Excellence Award for Tech Diversity, celebrating the drive towards a more multicultural work environment in the tech field.
Our goal is to highlight companies who are doing their best to improve opportunity for all – regardless of sex, race or sexual orientation and we urge the companies looking to make a difference to apply.
Social responsibility - the simple idea that businesses should balance profit-making activities with activities that benefit society, the environment, and the community. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) emphasizes that the relationship to the society and environment is "a critical factor in their ability to continue to operate effectively. It is also increasingly being used as a measure of their overall performance." Companies who can provide specific and measurable examples of programs that benefit society, the environment and their communities should apply for this award.
Answer yes, and you should apply for a TMCnet Workplace Excellence Award.
