PANEL DISCUSSION: DE&I STRATEGIES
Improve Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in your Workforce
Demonstrating that your organization promotes diversity and inclusion will boost your company’s success, but it can still be challenging. Your employees need to know they can trust you with their most personal information or you won’t have any reliable data. Boost your diversity and inclusion strategy by:
- Identifying underrepresented groups in your organization and establishing what diversity should look like.
- Building employee trust and developing reliable security protocols for providing and accessing employee information.
- Advertising and partnering with particular groups to find the people you need.
Cultivate employee trust to achieve organizational goals with a sound diversity and inclusion policy.
