Racially and ethnically diverse companies areMobility can be a valuable tool to enhance your employees’ growth, support existing diversity initiatives in your mobile population, and encourage more diverse employees to accept relocation opportunities.

To this end, it is vital for the Mobility function to focus on providing opportunities to a more representative population in support of broader organizational diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) objectives.

To provide a framework of approaches and actions towards a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable mobile workforce, SIRVA BGRS, in partnership with RW3 CultureWizard, developed a paper, Harnessing Employee Mobility to Enhance Understanding and Practice of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Mobility has the unique potential for an organization to actively develop DEI skills both in its employee population, and among its leadership.

The paper includes:

  • Tips for how to develop diversity awareness and inclusive mindsets in mobile employees
  • Benefits of targeted global inclusion training for your mobile employees
  • RW3 CultureWizard’s Intercultural Model: 8 Dimensions of Culture©
  •  A five-phase roadmap for DEI in talent mobility
  • An example of what a “gold standard” inclusive assignment might look like
