Workplace Equity is all about making the employees feel empowered and leveling the playing field for every employee. When organizations promote equality in the workplace they benefit from the competitive advantage of employing diverse talent and nurturing a great workplace culture.
Equity in a workplace refers to fair treatment for all. Transparency is evident to cause and effect, where everyone expects the same in terms of consequences and rewards. When there is equity, there is equal opportunity. When you give importance to equity, it creates a positive work environment for both the employees and the employer.
