Why Diversity Is So Important
Diversity has become one of the main objectives to be achieved by companies, as it has been possible to conclude in this edition . There are already many companies that are developing plans to implement inclusion, to eliminate possible discriminatory behaviors or processes, and to ensure total equal opportunities for all people, regardless of their age, gender, nationality, sexual identity, religion, abilities or racialization.
The reason for this boom in diversity goes beyond a simple fashion. There are many studies and reports that show that those companies that are committed to equal rights and opportunities for their team members are more likely to increase performance and, therefore, their benefits.
The Problem Of Implementing Diversity Plans
One of the main problems that the speakers said they had encountered during the implementation of their diversity plans was the training of their teams. As this is a somewhat tricky subject to teach -since nobody likes to be told that they may be discriminating-, the people who receive the training sometimes become defensive, which achieves the opposite effect to that desired.
And this is where gamification has proven to be tremendously effective. This learning technique transfers the mechanics of the games to the educational-professional field in order to achieve better results, and is usually based on role-playing. That is, the members of the teams participate in the courses playing a character. Being someone fictitious who has the problem, who may be discriminating and who receives the lesson, the person behind this role does not feel so singled out.
Game Of Diversity , The First 100% Gamified Tool On Diversity
Those who passed by the INSERVER stand were able to see the many advantages that Game of Diversity , the first 100% gamified tool on diversity, has when it comes to training work teams in this area.
Game of Diversity is a game-based learning solution (“learning based on the game”), which adapts very well to the training needs of each client, since it allows content to be added or modified depending on what is required.
Based on real cases of discriminatory employment situations, the training is easy to implement, and its duration is short, which ensures a higher degree of completion. It is also a 100% subsidised course by Fundae.
The goal of the Game of Diversity is to raise awareness and inform the organization of how diverse and inclusive it is. At the end of the course, this gamified tool provides a diagnosis of how capable the company is to adapt; in other words, how diverse and inclusive your company is.
Thus, for example, if it is detected that in the HR area they are not aware of the biases that govern their selection processes, the company can try to remedy it so as not to stop attracting talent wherever it is.
The Game Of Diversity Data Speaks For Itself:
- 89.2% of the people who take the course confirm that they have increased their ability to detect unconscious discriminatory biases in their environment.
- 87.5% of participants would recommend this course to other people/ organizations
- The people who have participated in the course rate it with an average of 7.25/10.
- Game of Diversity is a product of INSERVER, a start up specialized in eLearning and gamification. INSERVER was the only start up present at that offered a product to solve the need to train in diversity.
