Human resources management software and services provider ADP announced the launch of DEI Dashboard, aimed at enabling companies to analyze the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) aspects of their businesses and to set, track and expand their DEI goals.. The new dashboard is part of ADP’s people analytics solution, ADP DataCloud.
Workforce, management and board-level diversity have increasingly come into focus as a key sustainability issue at companies and several major investors announced initiatives to ramp up pressure for businesses to take action on DEI issues. Tracking and managing DEI, however, can be a challenge for many companies.
According to ADP, the new DEI Dashboard lets companies see the makeup of their workforce and identify whether any groups are underrepresented by using a simple question-and-answer format, with tabs including “How diverse is your workforce?” “Which areas of my organization are not diverse?” and “How diverse is my organization’s leadership distribution?” providing a comprehensive view of their workforce, elevating the supplemental data to analyze and to help answer these questions for their organization.
Additionally, the dashboard enables users to drill down into the DEI metrics of their staff by the organization, department and job level, breaking down data by categories like ethnicity, gender, age, disability or veteran status.
Bob Lockett, Chief Diversity and Talent Officer at ADP, said:
“Now more than ever, companies need to take a scientific approach to their diversity and inclusion efforts. The right data tools can enhance how they evaluate the makeup of their workforce and inform the decisions they need to help them hit their diversity goals, and ultimately make a huge difference for their people and their community.”
