ISO/DIS 30415 Human Resource Management Diversity & Inclusion
This framework is relevant to all organizations, whatever their size, sector and level of maturity. The standard recognises that each organisation is different and that decision-makers are best placed to determine the most appropriate approach according to their organisation’s context.
In the standard, “valuing people” is not confined to the calculation of directly quantifiable monetary value; the term is used in recognition that “value”, defined as the inherent and unique merit and worth of people, connotes the actual – or potential – contribution that people at all levels in the organisation make as a result of their capabilities, knowledge, skills, networks, experience, attitudes and insights.
This international standard provides guidelines to organizations on diversity and inclusion, D&I principles, practices, approaches, methods, and mechanisms, to enable and support equity, fairness, equality, and accessibility in workplace contexts. It recognises that each organisation is different and that decision-makers need to determine the most appropriate approach to integrate D&I into the organisation’s business processes, based on the organisation’s context. It can also foster consistency and fairness in the management and development of people in the supply chain, the delivery of the organisation’s products and services, and the interaction with other stakeholders.
This international standard identifies a set of principles, roles and responsibilities, actions, policies, processes, practices, and measures to evaluate impacts and outcomes to enable and support effective diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It recognises that each organisation is different and that decision-makers need to determine the most appropriate approach according to their organisation’s context.
This International Standard is voluntary and does not address the specific aspects of relations with labour unions, work councils, country-specific compliance or legal requirements or litigation.
