77% of millennials (aged 18-to-25 years) from the GCC and North Africa strongly agree that cultural diversity is key to a more innovative workplace, according to a new YouGov study commissioned by DP World. Majority are more attracted to a company that employs a diverse mix of employees, rather than ones with employees who match their own background, culture and thinking.

The results of the study, entitled ‘Diversity in the Workplace’, were revealed by DP World group chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem at the 16th edition of the Arab Media Forum (AMF). Bin Sulayem said: “The more diverse a workplace is, the more it benefits from creative and innovative thinking. It is the ethos of the world’s most successful and respected companies around the world. It is crucial for successful business and entrepreneurship, strengthening a nation’s economy in the process. The more diverse a workplace is, the more it benefits from creative and innovative thinking. It is the ethos of the world’s most successful and respected companies around the world.”
