📼 Cummins has studied the business case for diversity and can sum it up in four key points: First, it helps the company build a workforce that represents the communities in which they live and operate. Second, it helps promote different viewpoints, which helps increase the company's competitive advantage in the marketplace. Third, it demands that the workplace be safe and inclusive for all individuals and organizations. Finally, diversity encourages every employee to use their best talents.

📼 And how does Cummins' focus on diversity impact their application process? You will most likely have two rounds of interviews with various stakeholders. Cummins tests the candidate's predisposition to align with their core values at the core of it all. The company does this at every stage of the application process to ensure a correct fit between candidate and organization. They do this through structured behavioral interview questions. So, you'll prepare live examples to demonstrate how you fit in with the company culture. Bongani points out that at Cummins, they view the interview process as a two-way assessment tool, not only for themselves as an organization but also for the candidate. They want to set their value proposition for the candidate, as much as they will set their value proposition to the company.
