A survey by Korn/Ferry International found that more than 2 million peopleleave their jobs each year because of unfairness in the workplace. The hiringcosts which result from high turnover are a huge stumbling block to companysuccess, not to mention the time investment that goes into screening applicantsand acclimating new hires to their role. Still, the greatest hindrance toprogression lies within the heart of the issue—that is, to devalue and excludeemployees because they are different is to also place limitations on theircontributions and ability to grow.
