Organisations urged to be clear on diversity
In response to new figures showing that the number of diversity-related employment tribunals has increased, the Chartered Management Institute has urged organisations to embrace diversity.

According to the Employment Tribunal Service, last year saw the number of sexual discrimination claims rose to 14,250, while racial discrimination cases reached 4,103.

The guidance produced by the institute offers advice on how organisations can identify where change is required, provides information about potential barriers to diversity and methods of addressing such problems.

Jo Causon, director of marketing and corporate affairs at the Chartered Management Institute, said often a lack of understanding can lead to "resistance to change" in the workplace.

"Organisations should ensure that diversity policies are clear and well communicated to their staff, or risk losing out on the performance gains it can generate," she remarked.

The institute claims to be the only chartered professional body for management and leadership, providing support and advice to both individuals and organisations.
