Best Practices: Randstad’s Canada Workforce Diversity Study
The study examined the trends in workplace diversity of approximately 1500 participants (Randstad clients) that range from small to large Canadian companies in industries as diverse as ﬁ nancial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, information technology, the energy sector and government. The quantitative study was launched September 15, 2010 and ended October 15, 2010.
The results indicate that while only 38% of the employers polled currently have a diverse workforce hiring policy in place, a surprising 72% believe that having a diverse
workforce could enhance their team dynamic and give their business access to new markets.
