The Power of a Multicultural and Diverse Workforce
20 Jun 2022 2 mins read By Kaliopi Kucuqi

A very smart man once said: “We must not only learn to tolerate our differences. We must welcome them as the richness and diversity which can lead to true intelligence.” That man was non-other than Albert Einstein. This strong statement has become a necessity in today’s global society and markets, and we can observe changes happening every day. The time has come when we can utilise our differences as a powerful tool in order to achieve our goals and objectives.

 

The World of Remote Work

 

The globalisation of business has created a highly competitive and sophisticated environment. During these last few years, the popularity of remote jobs have had a huge impact in giving people the opportunity to be part of a multicultural and diverse workforce. Working in a multicultural and diverse team can be challenging when it comes to understanding different cultures, languages, and stereotypes, but at the same time being exposed to diversity has its advantages for both teams and businesses.

Multicultural and inclusive teams are:

  • Innovative,
  • Engaged,
  • Creative, and
  • Happier.

In a multicultural team, while working together, people will learn not only new tech skills but will also learn from each other’s experiences, about new cultures, and how to interact and properly communicate with each other. This eventually will help them develop a more open mindset and increase their flexibility.

Working from home and remote jobs alike has its benefits as well, like avoiding your daily commute and hectic Mondays at offices. More and more people are embracing each day with effective and balanced ways to live and work. Remote working is permitting people to live in more affordable areas, and sometimes away from urban life, cutting not only commute expenses but also living in a more sustainable way and impacting the development of the rural areas as well. It is permitting people to be more present in everyday life with family and loved ones. 

 

The Business Perspective

 

When a corporation works toward a specific goal, it requires a diverse collection of human skills and abilities. Working with homogeneous teams may appear to be easier and more manageable in terms of communication and collaboration. However, it has also proved that it can bring a company to remain comfortable and not progress in its ways, accepting this homogeneous way as the status quo. 

Remote jobs have contributed greatly to creating and improving multicultural, diverse, and inclusive workforces that bring together different talents, experiences, working methods, and expertise that can promote healthy competition, pushing a team to attain their full potential. A healthy competition atmosphere can bring to the table a new and unique perspective on innovative solutions, decision-making, and overall creativity. Combining these qualities can lead to the optimisation of company processes for greater efficiency, productivity, and innovative achievements.

Organisations with a culture of diversity and inclusion are both happier and more productive. People are keener to remain in a company for longer, improving business retention. From a business point of view, companies with the help of remote work trends can recruit the best talents worldwide. At the same time, companies can have deeper knowledge and insight regarding local markets, which can make the business more competitive and profitable.

Overall, the top benefits of a multicultural work environment are:

  • Increase of creativity and innovation,
  • Increase of productivity and quality,
  • Greater opportunities for personal and professional growth,
  • Attraction and retention of the best talent, and
  • Better knowledge of local markets.
