Unique & United: How to cultivate belonging culture
Over the last few years, innovative organizations have been embracing ״Diversity and inclusion״ as a step to business growth – it seems straight forward: Greater representation leads to wider product prospective and in turn equals GROWTH. However, whether we’d like to admit it or not, work is not the same as being with friends or even just strangers.
New studies show that most people look for work with more purpose, they want it to be less transactional, they want real inclusion - not just representation, and to feel like they can be themselves at work. Other studies found that when employees feel they can be themselves at work, the company tends to grow financially.
