DEI Research


Conducted in partnership with Perceptyx, this 50-plus page research report is based on survey responses from 804 HR professionals across industries, geographies, and company sizes. The research, conducted in the fall of 2020, mapped 84 practices against business and workforce outcomes to determine the five essential strategies and 15 practices that matter most. Hint: Diversity training is not among the most impactful practices.

The research report includes a four-stage DEI maturity model, informed by research results, with specific guidance to move organizations to move to higher levels of maturity. Readers will also find a detailed DEI framework covering all components of a comprehensive DEI strategy and case studies from Hilton, Consumer Reports, Target, Siemens, and Tetra Pak.
