In the modern workplace, we hear so much about the need to be equal, diverse, and inclusive, but what does it all mean?

Are there differences between each term, or do they all link into each other?In some ways, they link in, but in other ways they’re subtly different too. For instance, equality is about treating everyone the same, ensuring they are paid according to their responsibility band and not less simply because of their gender (as one example), and giving everyone the same opportunities. Diversity is about understanding people’s differences and celebrating them, empowering them, and also linking in with equality, to ensure people with so-called differences are treated the same as everyone else.So, what does inclusive mean?There is a very grey area here, because diversity and inclusiveness are extremely similar. The subtle difference is that diversity is about looking for differences and celebrating them in a very positive way, and inclusiveness is about allowing them to blend in, welcoming differences. You could say that diversity is about looking at who you have within your workplace, but inclusiveness is about looking at what you do with those differences and how you allow them to blend in, whether someone is sitting at an executive desk or a glass office desk. Does this link to equality? Yes, in a big way!Many of the ideas in that infographic can be performed by managers, but also by colleagues too. Embracing equality, diversity, and inclusiveness is an across the board deal, and raising awareness of these issues is vital if we want to achieve the final aim – a society which means everyone is equal, everyone is the same, regardless of anything which may or may not make them stand out as “different”. Setting up awareness sessions around the modern conference tables is a great idea, or team building days perhaps.It’s such a complicated subject, but it’s one that we must conquer!As you can see once more, the three terms really link into each other, but inclusiveness is about embracing change and allowing it to blend, allowing everyone sitting at their office chairs to feel like a part of the same team.Ensuring that your workplace is inclusive is a vital part in becoming a modern and successful business. It’s also our responsibility as human beings to ensure inclusiveness across the board. Our workplace is somewhere we all go on a daily basis to earn money, challenge ourselves, and do a particular job, but it’s also somewhere which we spend a lot of time. In that case, need to be happy and fulfilled within that space, and not pushed aside or made to feel like we don’t matter as much as someone else.Ensuring that everyone is treated the same, fairly, and equally is vital, but embracing differences and allowing them to blend into the workplace is at the heart of what inclusiveness is about.And make sure you use the Office Chair Singapore of Ardent Office Furniture (AOF) Singapore.
