Diverse workforce will 'boost business'
Growing a diverse workforce within a business will benefit the company, the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has said.

According to a report by the two bodies, recruitment costs are lowered, productivity is raised and morale is boosted if employers ensure they have a diverse range of workers.

Richard Lambert, the director general of the CBI, stated that growing a diverse workforce is not a "complex" process.

By "simply making the effort to work out your precise needs, reaching out as widely as you can then hiring, training or promoting the best person on merit", bosses should find they develop diversity, he remarked.

Brendan Barber, TUC general secretary, added that it is "crucial" in the present economic climate to unlock the talents of all staff members.

Employees were recently advised by author of career advice books Sarah Berry to ensure they present themselves as "valuable" to the company to achieve greater job security.
