Take steps to advance equality

Mercer helps organisations with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) consulting to advance equitable career, health and financial wellness outcomes in the workforce.

Accelerate diversity, equity and inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has become intrinsic to and synonymous with organisational health in today's world. Evidence shows companies that take steps to advance equality not only make a difference to their people and to the communities they serve — but also to their business.

Historically, DEI has occupied a less prominent seat at the corporate table. Today, internal and external pressure is driving companies to commit and show consistent progress. People sustainability and DEI are a key part of the “S” in environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives — and are now table stakes for every business. Organisations that are accelerating progress treat DEI in the workplace like any other core business imperative: having a strategy, engaging stakeholders, tracking and sharing progress, and holding leadership accountable for results.

It’s more critical than ever that companies understand that a DEI strategy is more than a differentiator — it’s foundational to growth and success.
