Human Capital Media Publishes 2015 Annual Diversity Value Index

Benchmarking program, conducted by HCM’s Talent Management magazine,
serves as tool for understanding value and impact of diversity in

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Human Capital Media, publisher of Talent Management
magazine, announced the release of its third annual Diversity Value
Index (DVI). The DVI benchmarking program is designed to examine how
organizations are implementing best practices for diversity and
inclusion (D&I) in all facets of the enterprise, from strategy to
business valuation. Senior editors and researchers at HCM partner with a
team of senior diversity executives to develop a forward-thinking
framework designed to prove the link between workplace diversity and
business value.

The DVI is the only tool in the marketplace that identifies key areas in
need of growth for a company’s D&I initiatives. In addition to
addressing the presence of diversity in an organization, the DVI also
provides the unique ability to determine any potential correlation
between D&I and business outcomes.

“Understanding diversity best practices is important because it allows a
company to bring a variety of perspectives into its ethos and gain
greater insight into its customer base — both of which increase the
company’s value,” said Sarah Kimmel, vice president of research at HCM.
“Our DVI program is the only available tool in the marketplace to prove
whether business value is being gained through the D&I function of an
organization. The purpose of an HR department should always be to create
an environment for people to succeed and therefore strengthen a company.
This tool allows for that success to be measured.”

Participants represented in the program include organizations from a
wide variety of industries, sizes and services, such as Capgemini,
Ingersoll Rand and Towers Watson.
