A key objective of transforming an organisation is shifting workforce perceptions by adjusting the way they think and behave so that an organisation can move forward with one shared vision. The path of change often challenges the assumptions of an organisation's structures, how it operates and its environment. Part and parcel of an organisation's journey of transformation is embracing the role of workplace diversity in creating a culture that is responsive to broad opportunities, societal values aligned with embracing diversity that can adapt to competing demands for innovation; thus organically enhancing business performance. Having a diverse set of perspectives, cultures and experiences is critical to driving growth and prosperity. Therefore, it is essential for organisations to acknowledge that diversity breeds innovation and innovation breeds business excellence.
