To maintain proper balance among the workforce, employers need to support diversity and inclusion. Hence, they need to implement strategies for the initiation.

● Conceding the unconscious bias in workplaces

To be an all-inclusive workplace, employers or businesses require timely interaction with the employees regarding any conscious or unconscious bias.

This can lead to learning opportunities for recruiters who can recognize and address the issue. Employers can hold seminars to educate the employees on how unconscious bias can affect people.

The hiring process plays a significant role in maintaining diversity and inclusion. Recruiting through recommendations and internal hires boosts an employee's confidence level by ensuring a guarantee to them. It can also create challenges in balancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Hence, the recruitment process must be based on entirely unbiased and professional conditions.

● Interacting with the workforce

The workforce of a company or organization is the best guide to make one understand what can be done better to foster diversity and inclusion. Allowing employees to voice their opinion can make them feel valued and essential. Here, an employer's role is to create a non-judgmental and welcoming space for their employees. The workforce would then be confident, which can help employers maintain diversity and inclusion at work in the long run.

Maintaining diversity and inclusion in a workplace is a continuous process that an employer or recruiter must perpetuate every time they hire an employee.
