Diversity is about differences. Each of us is different, and at SGV we value and respect individual differences. Today, we think broadly about our differences, such as background, education, gender, ethnicity, nationality, generation, age, working and thinking styles, religious background, sexual orientation, ability and technical skills. There are also differences according to service line, sector and function.
Inclusiveness is about leveraging these differences to achieve better business results. It is about creating an environment where all our people feel, and are valued, for who they are, have a sense of belonging, and are inspired to contribute their personal best in every encounter. Research shows that companies with diverse teams that are led inclusively perform better than homogenous teams. The ability to learn from various perspectives is the key to high-performing teams, driving innovation for our organization and our clients.
Highest performing teams are diverse groups of committed, distinctive and passionate people, brought together in a shared vision and deeply invested in each other’s success. As individuals, they bring their own unique experiences, skills, backgrounds and perspectives. As a group, together they form the right mix of talent to excel in volatile markets, solve the most complex problems and deliver quality results that surpass expectations.
We know that diverse and inclusive teams make the working world better. By drawing on different perspectives and exchanging ideas freely across borders, we stimulate innovation, foster collaboration and deepen relationships. This increases organizational agility and strengthens resilience to disruption. It drives better decision-making and, ultimately, growth.
We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels valued. Our focus on diversity and inclusiveness is integral to how we serve clients, develop SGV people and play a leadership role in communities around the world.
