DEI Trends


According to ADP, Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace are critical to the success of best-in-class organizations. In 2020, the coronavirus global health event, economic uncertainty and high-profile racial justice events are all issues that have informed the direction of DEI initiatives, and these factors will likely influence DEI trends in the coming year as well.
