Equity - Treat Them Fairly
Sure, it is pretty easy to do, right?
All you need to do is to treat everyone the same?
For example: You are giving meatballs to everyone at lunch, irrespective of rage, age, gender etc. This seems like equity.
This is not equity. This is equality.
Now, we have established so far that both aren’t the same.
In the example above, what if person A was vegan. He, along with a handful of people, don’t eat meat.
So, what should have been done?
Following the concept of equity, a menu with both vegan/ veg/ non-veg options should have been provided at the lunch and people should have been given an option to choose.
Equity in the Workplace.
A very important point is that the equity process should be transparent. Everyone needs to know they have equal opportunities. It is surely a two way-process. If you are giving equal opportunities to people, they are also equally responsible for their actions.
How Can You Achieve It?
Well, not only does it make employees feel important and motivated to perform well, but it has other advantages also.
