Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

About this course

Top employment lawyers advise it is essential to provide all staff with diversity and inclusion training on, or shortly after starting employment.

Legal Island’s Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace eLearning course is tailored specifically to Northern Ireland law and provides comprehensive compliance training for all employees ensuring they are aware of their roles and responsibilities in promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace for everyone.


What is diversity and inclusion?

Diversity is understanding, accepting, and valuing differences between people within the workplace, including those of different races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, disabilities, and sexual orientations, and with that, differences in education, personalities, skill sets and experiences. Inclusion is a collaborative, supportive, and respectful workplace environment where everyone feels they can participate and achieve their potential.


Why is diversity & inclusion training important?

Many of Northern Ireland’s most successful organisations now champion the importance of diversity in the workplace. Numerous studies point to the connection between high returns and greater workplace diversity.

Diversity and Inclusion training helps staff raise awareness of the value of collaborating with people of different cultures, races, genders, ethnicities, beliefs, experiences and ideas.

Training all staff within this topic area can also boost business performance, reduce the likelihood of harassment issues at work and strengthen an employer’s defence in Industrial Tribunal cases.

A recent survey ‘A Welcoming and Inclusive Workplace’ by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland found that one in four (25%) employees stated that they had witnessed unwanted behaviours towards others during the past 12 months


Who needs diversity & inclusion training?

Advice from top employment lawyers is that diversity and inclusion training is completed on day one of employment and then refreshed regularly to ensure all staff are aware of the value of collaborating with people of different cultures, races, genders, ethnicities, beliefs, experiences and ideas and their roles and responsibilities in keeping the workplace harassment-free.


How long does this Diversity & Inclusion training take?

The course will take no longer than 60 minutes to complete including an assessment. Each member of staff will receive their own personalised certificate upon successful completion.
