The State of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Efforts: Progress, Priorities, and Opportunities

The State of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Efforts: Progress, Priorities, and Opportunities

Over the past year, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has grown from being a buzzword that people discussed frequently into a business imperative.

We surveyed over 500 HR decision-makers and 1,000 employed adults to learn what efforts companies have been taking to increase their DEI efforts, how they’ve been communicated, and the gap between the company’s perspective versus the employee’s perspectives.

In our 2021 State of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report, some interesting statistics show what progress we’ve made, and what still needs work:

  • 57% of employers are looking at hiring efforts to meet their DEI goals
  • 43% of employers say it’s difficult to find diverse applicants
  • 57% of employers are highly confident that they will achieve their DEI goals
  • 29% of employees say their companies are making progress, but there’s still a long way to go
