Definition
We are all different and bring different views and skills to the workplace. More and more companies recognise that this diversity is critical to business success. Nowhere is this more true than Asia. With the focus on continued growth and enhanced business performance, companies in Asia need to ensure they have access to the best ideas and the brightest talent – regardless of what shape or form it comes in. Inclusion is about creating a workplace environment free from prejudice and discrimination so that all – regardless of gender, culture, religion, age, sexual orientation or gender identity, for example - can contribute their full potential.

Key Initiatives



D&I STRATEGY FRAMEWORK
Developed in partnership with the member companies of the Diversity & Inclusion in Asia Network (DIAN) in 2012, the D&I Strategy Framework is a strategic tool designed to help companies make progress on their D&I journey in Asia. The tool was developed based on a global model* and adapted to support companies in driving locally-relevant D&I strategies and embedding a culture of D&I within their organisations across the Asia region. Comprising both a framework and a process, it is structured around a 97 best practice indicators in 14 categories and 4 areas and is supplemented by an online toolkit that can help companies leverage the power of this tool.

For more details, visit dsf.communitybusiness.org

*The Framework has been developed based on the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks: Standards for Organisations Around the World (2011). Originally designed by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) in the United States in the early 1990s, Alan Richter and Julie O’Mara received permission to update and expand the work globally, publishing the first version of Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks in 2006.

GENDER DIVERSITY BENCHMARK FOR ASIA
In March 2009, Community Business launched the first Gender Diversity Benchmark for Asia (link). This research tracks the participation of women at different levels of the organisation within 10 leading multinational companies in China, India, Japan and Singapore, providing a valuable starting point for companies looking to track their own performance in terms of promoting gender diversity. A second edition of the GDBA was compiled in 2011 (link) – extending the data to cover more companies and more markets in Asia.

The third edition, launched in 2014, presents data showing the representation of women at junior, middle and seniors levels in 32 multinational companies across 6 markets in Asia: China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. In addition to providing essential benchmarking data, the research provides an overview of policies and programs that companies have in place to support the advancement of women and features interviews with twelve senior male executives deemed to be champions of gender diversity in their organisations.

Building the Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion – Stories from Asia

Published: March 2016

Price: HK$400 (US$52)

Available in English

Member Exclusive Access

Special 20% off Offer until 31 July 2016

 

Asia represents a strategic growth market and a growing number of companies recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion – both as a talent management strategy but also as a source of competitive advantage.  However, most companies in Asia are at the relatively early stages of their diversity journey. Understanding of the issues from an Asian perspective continues to evolve and for the most part, efforts tend to be ad hoc and initiative driven rather than a core part of business strategy.

 

This research facilitates companies in Asia to develop the ability to position the business case and articulate the impact on the business in a way that resonates, as well as to share anecdotes or stories that bring the business case to life.
