Shining the spotlight on the women behind the scenes

In celebration of International Women’s Day we’ve focussed the spotlight on some of the incredible international females behind wellteq! We can’t thank these brilliant minds enough for their input to our journey of success. We want to encourage you to check out the posts on each one of these superstars who offer a truly inspiring insight into the world of wellbeing.

Diversity + inclusion = more success

Did you know that a company that is diverse can generate up to 35% more revenue? And let’s not forget the effect a mixed workforce has on workplace culture! That’s why we believe that diversity can very much contribute to workplace wellness and is essential to the future success of a business.

But it doesn’t stop there. To be truly successful it’s important to ensure you have a workplace culture of inclusion, which is much harder to crack. All employees need to feel they’ve been treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources that are relevant to them, and can contribute fully to the organisation’s success.

Think about this…

A local government wants to run an initiative to get everyone mobile, no matter what they’re income status, while still being environmentally responsible. So the government ministers decide to give every citizen a free push bike. Sounds like a great initiative and like everyone has been treated equally, right? But what about those who have physical disabilities and can’t ride a bike? What about those who don’t know how to ride a bike? Will free lessons be part of the deal so they can maximise the use of the free bike? This is the difference between equality and inclusion and beautifully illustrates why HR professionals need to consider both when building a workplace culture.
