Seriously... what's all this talk about inclusion? Leveraging the power of diversity is all about embracing inclusion!
Diversity awareness and inclusion means recognizing and responding to the needs of various groups within the workforce to improve working relationships within our organization and teams.
Diversity is a given. It simply exists. But… creating an inclusive team environment that values diversity helps us achieve our organization’s goals – both cultural and financial.
The Numbers Don't Lie...
According to a survey by Salesforce Research, companies that make their cultures more inclusive are better positioned to achieve strong customer loyalty as well as boost employee engagement and productivity.
- Employees who feel their voice is heard (and they feel included) at work are nearly five-times more likely to feel empowered to perform their best work.
- Employees who say their company provides equal opportunities are nearly four times more likely to say they are proud to work for their company.
- Employees who say they are able to be their authentic self at work are nearly three times more likely to say they are proud to work for their company — and nearly four-times more likely to say they are empowered to perform their best work.
