Research has proven time and again that diversity and inclusion is good for business. In fact, companies that formalize inclusive policies are more likely to see higher financial performance than their peers who have not adopted these policies, and their employees report greater job satisfaction, according to a 2019 report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. And in an industry (transportation and logistics) where quality talent is becoming more difficult to find and retain, it’s good business sense to ask these questions: Are you missing an untapped labor pool? How inclusive is your company? Have you proactively created a welcoming, safe work environment for the LGBTQ+ community – or have you even made an effort to reach this community?
