IBCR 2012-XL: International Business Case Report (upgraded)

Success through Diversity Management: 135 empirical studies (up from 90) on the economic relevance, benefits and value-added from D&I

Diversity and Inclusion has been established as a strategic approach in the U.S., across EMEA, in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and other countries worldwide. But, what in fact can organisations gain from Diversity? Which empirically measurable results are achieved by heterogeneous teams and what effect does Inclusion have on sales?

The new ‘International Business Case Report’ (IBCR 2012-XL) provides new answers to the profitability and specific benefits of Diversity with a systematic evaluation of 135 relevant empirical studies from around the world. The report summarises the most relevant research projects related to D&I and provides a robust rationale for proactively managing diversity.

IBCR 2012-XL is based on (and fully includes) the previous IBCR (2009) and BCR (2007); upgrades to the new extended version are hence available. Research for IBCR 2012-XL was closed 21 Dec 2011.
