Inclusion Initiatives

An inclusive workplace culture is where employees feel empowered to bring their whole selves to work. While a company may support diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices, if a culture of respect and appreciation for differences is not fostered in a business, it can lead to workplace conflicts, disengagement and presenteeism, and ultimately a loss of talent. Building inclusive workplaces can increase employee satisfaction and company loyalty. Valuing individuality helps employees feels comfortable in expressing their views and creativity. Developing inclusive cultures should be guided by employee needs as well as the company diversity and inclusion strategy and then reinforced by targeted actions.
