SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TECH INCLUSION -- Culture Amp is excited to announce the release of its Inclusion and Diversity Benchmark which allows companies to assess their progress against others dedicated to improvement in the space.
The benchmark was collated from the data of companies that have taken the Inclusion Survey, jointly created by Paradigm and Culture Amp and currently free for technology companies to use. Paradigm and Culture Amp announced the partnership earlier this year with a mission to develop targeted strategies to help companies become more diverse and inclusive organizations.
Culture Amp Strategist Steven Huang says the benchmark is a big step forward in allowing companies further context and insight on where they need to take action.
"By using the benchmark companies can get a quick snapshot of how they are tracking compared to others," Huang says. "We're big advocates of using data to foster insight and improvement, and the more data we have in this space the better equipped we are to fix things."
So far close to 30 companies have used the survey, but it's hoped that 100 companies will take the survey by the end of the year with the release of the benchmark data.
"The Inclusion Survey is less about measuring problems in a company, and more about finding and measuring specific things that companies can improve on," Huang says. "For too long we've been flying blind on this issue and in order to commit to actual improvement we need to 'learn, act, repeat'."
