We hope it is clear by now that diversity is a fact, inclusion is a choice. You walk out of your house and will encounter people of every gender, race, background, etc. But, fostering an inclusive culture is quite different. It means providing your employees with a safe and supportive environment. Where do you start? We’re glad you asked.
IT STARTS AT THE TOP - If the C-suite isn’t on board with your initiatives, then you’re dead in the water.
ACTION - Don’t be “that guy.” Sure, you need to listen. You also need to take action! You know what they say about all talk...it’s cheap.
VALUE FEEDBACK - Listen to your employees. Their unique perspectives will help shape effective inclusive programs and initiatives.
There are plenty of benefits to having an inclusive culture, and we’re not just referring to your employees.
Increased Revenue - 75% of companies with a diverse team and inclusive cultures will exceed their financial targets.
Increased Employee Engagement - 83% of Millennials reported higher levels of engagement when their employer fostered an inclusive culture.
Customer Preference - Brands with higher diversity scores show an 83% higher customer preference.
