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 Great Britain 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 Great Britain's most successful organisations now champion the importance of equality and 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 'Sexual harassment of LGBT people in the workplace' by TUC, released in May 2019, found that nearly 7 in 10 (68%) of LGBT people have been sexually harassed at work.

 

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.
