Diversity is defined as…
“an instance of being composed of differing elements or qualities.
(W)OC has a diverse team of experts in various fields including communications, social media, public relations, graphic design, videography, and more. Not only is our team diverse but the industries we cover are also; this makes for a complementary partnership. Who says you can’t be an expert in more than one field?
The Facts about Diversity:
According to the Harvard School of Law, “the presence of an industry expert independent director is associated with an increase of 4.6% in firm value.”
Whether it be a firm, agency, or business having an industry expert will add to the value of your company.
Another fact says, “40% of respondents in a recent survey of S&P 500 firms identified industry expertise as a desired background.”
We all could learn a thing-or-two from the business strategies of the S&P 500 firms.
Diversity in a Contagious Atmosphere:
At (W)OC we have a positive atmosphere that makes for less stress and allows us to GSD (Get Stuff Done). Everyone here works together in the benefit of achieving the tasks at hand.
Mark Nadler says, “You want people who understand the business and the industry that you’re in so they can think strategically.”
Having a team that is comprised of a diverse background makes for a winning team that can strategize together for the big win.
To put it simply, “a diverse team makes for a strong team!”
He goes on to say, “the roles of the individual board member, the outside person, is to pull the two sides together, to create a link and to bridge different opinions and different points of view.” Again, backing up the concept of,
A diverse team = A strong team!
At (W)OC we help strengthen each other with our expertise. We’re always lending advice and coming together for a team huddle to create winning strategies for our client partner’s. Having that one team member that is an expert in such industries can be helpful to bring together both sides of a vision.
