Studies from ISS have validated how diverse teams perform better than homogeneous teams (ISS, 2011) and found that diversity drives leadership development (ISS, 2017). This ISS study reveals how a high numerical representation of differences or superdiversity drives social well-being in the workplace by encouraging 1) solidary acts of mutual support based on supplementary skills and abilities, 2) enhanced communication and socializing, which are necessary for collaboration in a diverse environment, and 3) open-mindedness creating collaborative and social bonds across age, gender, and ethnocultural differences.
