Your Diverse Employees Need to Feel at Home When They’re At Work
Disrupting the norms within your industry requires a diverse talent set including those who aren’t comfortable with business as usual. If that's what you're aiming for, you need to provide a culture and workplace environment that welcomes and supports diversity, not just ‘race, creed, color’, but also creative and unorthodox personalities.
Sir Richard Brandon says that the positives of maverick talent “far outweigh” the negatives.
In this BBC article, Are you a 'disruptive talent' like Sir Richard Branson?, Branson acknowledges that he might be hard to handle as an employee. But he also points out that employees that are “independently minded, rule-breaking, stubborn people like himself” may be difficult to manage but bring tremendous benefits to organizations.Modern Best Practice for HR & Talent Leverages Technology to Embrace Diversity
