The definition of diversity goes beyond the traditional traits that make each of us different and focuses on those traits that make each employee unique. Creating an atmosphere that fully utilizes the talents and abilities of every employee is critical to the mission of any business. The ability to bring people into harmony with our positive intentions is one of the most fundamental and powerful tools for business success. Valuing diversity is not tolerating differences; it is truly appreciating and applying differing perspectives and experiences to achieve goals.
