How can I improve my company’s financial performance? What steps can I take to retain employees? Is there a way I can provide a working environment that is competitively advantageous?
…three very common questions for most companies. There is no denying that these questions are overwhelmingly vast and complex, but for today we are going to focus on one element of your business that can help you on your way to finding the answer to all three of these questions:
Diversity, Inclusiveness and Engagement in the workplace.
Recognizing, embracing and encouraging racial and gender diversity is just one aspect of this topic; creating a feeling of inclusiveness amongst a team is really the glue that is essential to strengthening a diverse social tapestry within the workplace. In order to foster a feeling of inclusiveness and engagement within your team, Rebecca Riffkin and Jim Harter, at Gallup believe tapping in to each employee’s unique strengths is the first step…and we agree!
“Teams with a higher proportion of individuals who gained awareness of their strengths realized substantially higher improvement in perceived inclusiveness.” (Rebecca Riffkin and Jim Harter, Gallup)
