The Critical Connection Between Resilient Workplaces And Diversity

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, January 28, 2019

The standard concept of sustainability is the capacity of biological systems to remain diverse and productive over time—like healthy wetlands and old growth forests. In the workplace, sustainability is equally important in considering the two-legged biological "systems" that sit in cubicles, drive to sales calls, conduct virtual meetings, perform surgery, write manuals, handle customers, and a host of other activities.
