Diversity and Inclusion for the Win

You must have often come across organizations promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace. These two terms are now being used frequently and often interchangeably across all industries. While it is true that these two concepts are interconnected, they are far from being interchangeable, and the first step towards promoting a robust and diverse environment in the workplace is identifying the differences between the two.

Diversity is about representation, while inclusion is about how much you value and integrate the opinions and contributions from these different sets of people into your work environment. It shouldn’t matter where they are coming from or who they are, but a diverse and inclusive workplace makes everyone feel valued and equally involved.

Several scientific studies claim that diversity enhances creativity and encourages different perspectives, leading to better decision-making and driving breakthrough innovations. It also improves customer experience, enhances reputation, increases the market share and the overall productivity of the organization. The benefits of assembling a diverse team are endless, and while it is true that the overall diversity in the workplace is increasing each day, there is still a lot of work to be done. The need for greater gender diversity in the workplace has never been more critical.

A survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre claims that only about 5% of CEOs in major corporations across the United States are women. The number is painstakingly low, but there are reasons for optimism.

Women across the world are breaking gender barriers and taking on senior leadership roles in industries that have been dominated by men for decades. Since the year 2015, diversity in the workplace has been increasing exponentially. It’ll most likely continue to grow as organizations recognize the benefits and the positive impact of promoting equal opportunities for all in the workplace.

Women leaders are slowly coming out on top across most industries today, but unfortunately, tech companies are still trying to catch up. It is rather surprising because technology is all about innovation and progress, yet it is the one falling behind. Tech companies need to step up their game and take firm steps to promote a more diverse and inclusive environment for all.

A poll conducted by Intech suggests that some of the best ways to promote gender equality in the workplace are promoting an open-minded atmosphere, work-life balance, equal pay, and leadership roles for all regardless of their gender.

Intech has been hard at work trying to implement such practices in its workplace. The percentage of women leaders at Intech has been consistently increasing in the last two years. We have seen a substantial rise in the year 2021 with the percentage increase in the number standing at 61%, and it is projected to grow even faster in the coming months. We are taking solid steps to work on the gender divide, and it is certainly reassuring to know that our efforts are coming to fruition. Our efforts have also been recognized at a global level. Intech won the third position at the “IAMCP Diversity and Inclusion Poster Challenge.” We believe in giving the best experience to anyone who is a part of the Intech family. We take pride in announcing that all the planning and execution activities for our brand launch were also carried out by a 100% women-run team in a tech company and that alone speaks volumes about the kind of culture that we are promoting here at Intech.

The capabilities that women leaders bring to the table are undeniable. The last year has been a landmark for women leaders at Intech, with many of them taking on senior management roles, and it is only the beginning of better things to come. We are in awe of the courage, wisdom, and dedication manifested by these powerful women who have been working tirelessly towards helping us realize the future that we had once imagined. These fearless women truly exemplify the bold spirits and ambitions of our organization and push us to work even harder to try to make this world a better and more equitable place for all.

Why is Microsoft Dynamics 365 the Top Choice for ERP Systems in 2021?

An Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) System is an integrated management application that helps to interpret and manage finance, supply chain, manufacturing, project management, and other day-to-day business operations efficiently.

An ERP system tracks every aspect of the core business processes, often in real-time, reducing operational and administrative costs by more than 20% (Source: Demand Dynamics). It is no wonder that more than 53% of businesses name ERP and CRM as priority investments (Linchpin). The ERP market is growing at a rate of 10-20% every year, and it is expected to reach $78.4 Billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 10.2% (Source: Allied Market Research). ERP has paved the way to successfully become one of the fastest-growing software in the information technology industry today.

With the multitude of benefits that ERP offers to businesses of all sizes and industries, it becomes the obvious choice if you are looking to automate and streamline your business processes or looking to expand without incurring additional IT or staffing costs. There are numerous ERP software tools available in the market, but Microsoft Dynamics 365 brings the best of what enterprise resource planning has to offer. There is tough competition in this market, and it is crucial to make the right choice to get the maximum benefit out of it.
