Join us for our third Power Hour of the series: Culture – How to create truly inclusive workplaces.

Inclusive workplaces are those that value diversity, equity, and respect for all employees, regardless of differences such as race, gender, religion, sexual orientation and disability. An inclusive workplace promotes a sense of belonging and encourages employees to bring their whole selves to work. This leads to higher levels of engagement, productivity, and innovation. Building an inclusive workplace is not only a moral imperative but also benefits the bottom line by attracting and retaining top talent and cultivating creativity through collaboration.

Of the many things that Craig has done to help build stronger workplace cultures that support people, one of the most significant has been his work to help build the world’s largest community of people who believe a better world of work is possible and committed to taking action to help make this happen. In his story, he will share a bit about building this community as well as some of the key learnings from this journey that are directly related to building distributed organizations aligned to a shared purpose because this is what our organizations are becoming in the post-pandemic world.

The Five Pillars of Belonging: Investing in the conditions that engage employees & empower managers

In this session we’ll explore Achievers Workforce Institute (AWI) research that shows creating conditions for belonging has an immediate and lasting effect. Employees who feel a strong sense of belonging are twice as likely to be engaged, productive, and satisfied. We’ll also share a tactical and practical perspective on how to ensure that every employee feels welcomed, known, included, supported, and connected. Learn more about activating these five pillars at work during this session.
