There are many definitions and descriptions when it comes to the words used for diversity and inclusion. However, at Fuze HR Solutions, we have adopted the following definition: Diversity and Inclusion is the understanding that within an organization, the most valuable asset is their people. The principal factor that diversity and inclusion stresses is that each person is unique and is capable of bringing unique contributions, based on their personal and professional characteristics, to the workplace.
In today’s workforce, diversity means more than ethnicity and gender. It has taken on new life, as there is a growing importance placed on creating environments where these “obvious” differentiators are not the only indicators of diversity and inclusion. It has become important to create environments where all people are encouraged to draw upon their unique experiences, perspectives and backgrounds to advance business goals.
Diversity in the workplace today can include some of the following:
Inclusive recruitment involves the process of connection with, interviewing and hiring diverse candidates. For the most part, this is accomplished by expanding our search and thinking outside the traditional methods of candidate sourcing, as well as identifying common forms of unconscious biases that may occur in recruitment and education on how to avoid them.
Diversity training helps employees understand how cultural differences can impact how people interact with each other at work. It can cover anything from concepts of time and communication styles to self-identity and dealing with or resolving conflict.
At Fuze HR, our approach to diversity and inclusion can be felt throughout every level of the organization.

This year, we turn our focus to the Indigenous communities, and increasing their engagement in the Canadian workforce. We recognize that relationship building with Indigenous communities will take time and is based on trust and common values. As such, our first step for 2022 will be to ensure that all Fuze HR employees have an in-depth understanding of Indigenous communities, their culture, history, and values.
