Get the Benefit of All Available Talent
For companies to reach their fullest potential, they must successfully tap into all available talent. Those that do not successfully recruit a diverse workforce, create an inclusive workplace where women want to work and grow their careers, retain these high-potential employees, and help them to take senior management roles, will miss out on more than half of the talent otherwise available to them.
Companies have invested heavily in recruiting the smartest, most capable women, but they are failing to retain the women as they advance in their careers. Instead, these women too often leave organizations long before their employers can truly benefit from everything the women bring to the table, and well before they can be elevated to leadership positions. The failure to retain and develop this talent carries a high cost in lost investment, and it puts those organizations at a competitive disadvantage.
