The way people view disparity and inequality across organizations is shifting. With a large proportion of the global population standing in solidarity and committed to advancing equal human dignity and respect, diversity, inclusion, racial equality, and peace.
Fuel50 asked HR Leaders from over 200 organizations across the globe a series of questions about the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) in their organizations. Our findings showed that 80% of organizations said that enhancing and improving their DE&I practices is one of their strategic goals, yet only 50% are reporting publicly on their employee gender and diverse background representation.
Uncovering these statistics led us to question, why does diversity and inclusion matter in organizations, and what is the business impact on organizations that don’t prioritize these initiatives? Is there a positive correlation between talent visibility and diversity and inclusion?
This report explores what characteristics unite those organizations that we class as “DE&I Best in Class” vs. those that we class as “Low Diversity”, and details the four essential elements of an inclusive culture.

An evolving trend emerged from our research that those organizations who prioritized and had higher organizational diversity, also prioritized internal recruitment practices. These organizations tended to fill roles via internal recruitment over external recruitment, look at internal candidates first when filling open positions, and the majority of their senior leadership roles were filled internally.
