Research shows that diverse and inclusive workplaces have higher levels of performance and engagement but that workplaces that only focus on diversity without inclusion create workplaces where diverse staff are either highly unengaged or outright leave. SHRM describes the inclusion piece of D&I as “making sure those different voices are heard and valued and that they contribute to the performance” of your organization. In this Lunch and Learn, the members of the BUILD Business Resource Group will share with you tips on how workforce data can be used to measure inclusion, tips on how HR professionals can help influence a more inclusive workplace, and share with you some voices of BRG members on what an inclusive workplace would look like for them.
Our blog includes but is not limited to events, insights, and highlights to augment basic education.
