Organizations agree diversity, equity, and inclusion are vital for building a strong company culture—but getting the conversation around DEI started in the right way isn’t always easy. In fact, the No. 1 thing we hear from clients is that they simply do not know where to begin.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do we have an inclusive environment?
- What is perceived as valued in our culture?
- What does it mean to have a fair and inclusive culture?
- Do employees in our company feel left out?
Now ask yourself – Do our employees agree with these responses? Does our company’s actions back up what we say?
If you can’t confidently answer these questions, it’s time to engage in a collective conversation with your employees. The best way to do this is with an employee listening program that allows you to capture thoughts, ideas, opinions, and feedback from your workforce and turn it into actionable insight. Now is the time to address DEI head on by actively engaging your employees in the discussion.
