Most leaders agree inclusion is important. But what it means and how it comes to life varies widely from one company to the next. The key to inclusion is making sure each employee feels included, and this is exactly where many companies lose momentum. You need true commitment from everyone, every day and throughout an organization, to create a culture that feels inclusive.
And the proof is in the numbers: Employees who feel included are 43 percent more committed to their organization.
What is Inclusion?
Inclusion is a sense of belonging, connection and community at work. Inclusive organizations help people feel welcomed, known, valued — and encouraged to bring their whole, unique selves to work. Inclusion revolves around the day-to-day interactions between employees, managers, leaders, teams and peers. In other words, genuine inclusion relies on leadership support and grassroots energy.
The truth is, fostering inclusion is easier said than done. It takes focus and action at every level, not just a mandate from the C-suite.
In this in-depth guide you’ll discover how to make a real impact and display ongoing commitment to your people to build an inclusive workplace.
