Conexio Care and Coras Grand Opening

Conexio and CORAS’s grand opening of their new state-of-art facility in Delaware represents a significant step to improving access to behavioral health services in the state. The building provides integrated substance abuse and behavioral health treatment services. Services are tailored to meet the unique needs of each person, with a focus on evidence-based care.

One of the primary benefits of the new facility is that it provides a single point of access to all levels of care. This means that people can start at any level of care and then progress as needed. The facility also has a wraparound care team that offers a spectrum of services, ranging from primary care to children’s and family-based services.

Outpatient clinics, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Intensive Outpatient Programs are also available at the facility.

This new facility is a much-needed addition to the state of Delaware. Behavioral health services are in high demand, and there is a significant unmet need for these services. The opening of this new facility will help address this need and provide people with the care they need.

The Importance of Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion in Today’s Corporate Workplace?

The Importance of Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion in Today’s Corporate Workplace

Within your workplace, you’ve likely heard of the term DEI, but what do diversity, equity, and inclusion mean? Moreover, what’s the difference between these terms? In this blog post, we tackle these questions, while explaining the importance of DEI and answering why companies must embrace DEI in our workplace.

What is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?

While there is a general lack of awareness in DEI, a simple definition of what each one means can solve this problem. Below is a quick breakdown of each category

Diversity

Diversity refers to the differences between the people inside and outside of a company. It also covers the acceptance and understanding between these differences, which may include:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Disabilities and special needs
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Personality
  • Education
  • Experience
  • Background

However, the list isn’t limited to the examples above and can be expanded. It’s also important to consider the different perceptions that people have when it comes to the term diversity.

Equity

This term may also bear a different meaning from one company to another, but in general, it refers to being impartial and fair with everyone. Moreover, it talks about providing equal advancement and opportunity for everyone in the company, from the hiring process to their compensation.

Inclusion

An inclusive workplace will typically be supportive, collaborative, and respectful of everyone in the company. Inclusion is important in all organizations to encourage the contribution and participation of all employees.

Why Companies Should Embrace DEI

A company that’s dedicated to DEI not only aims to preserve diversity, equity, and inclusion but can also get a competitive advantage when it comes to both work and business. Here are just a few reasons why our business would benefit from building DEI programs:

Adapt DEI Practices Today

Don’t ignore just how powerful DEI can be. Including these practices in your company can renew the energy between employees and how your business runs overall.

It Helps Companies to Grow

Research shows that companies with a DEI mindset can create inclusive and diverse work environments that are both more creative and adaptable. A report by BCG confirms that companies with a wide range of diversity have a higher innovation revenue of up to 45%. Moreover, 66% of executives agree that DEI is a huge contributor to financial performance.

It Attracts the Best Talents

A company’s commitment to DEI can build up over time, where many can develop a kind of reputation that helps to attract and keep the best talent. However, this doesn’t surprise us, since 67% of individuals looking for a job consider diversity as a driving factor. In short, people are looking for inclusive, equitable, and diverse organizations.

Discrimination Loses More than it Gains

Apart from the ethical and moral consequences of being discriminatory against a particular individual at work, you don’t just send a negative message about your organization. Enabling discrimination can have severe consequences; you don’t just lose an employee, but you also lose money. An estimate by the Center for American Progress details that businesses lose $64 billion annually due to workplace discrimination.
