Fostering a diversity, inclusion, and belonging into your company culture is at the heart of a DIBs-oriented company. This video helps you foster a workplace in which diversity, inclusion and belonging aren’t merely buzzwords but are deeply rooted in your culture and philosophy. You also earn how to foster an environment where everyone embraces uniqueness, seeing it as a driver of innovation and not having to assimilate to fit in.
- The first step to looking at DIBs in your company is just take a pulse. How is your company doing? What does the culture feel like, look like? Listen to your employees, do an EBS survey. There's many ways to take a pulse on the organization. Then look at the health metrics, turn over your diversity footprint, where you're growing, how you're growing, the makeup in your management team, so on and so forth. And then you'll see some glaring opportunities and then you have to decide how to prioritize them and how they get addressed. And so, if you're hiring but can't retain, it's a culture thing and if it's a culture thing, think about belonging. Think about where it impacts every moment of an employee's journey and then survey those moments, survey at hire, how was your greeting, how was your day one, how was your ramp-up, do you feel supported? That first transition as a manager, did you feel supported, do you feel like there's someone cares about you? Those DIB index-like questions along the way and then calibrate. Find where you're trending, fix it. Find where you're trending, fix it and you're going to find lots of opportunities, but don't try to fix them all at once. You'll be overwhelmed. Focus, one step at a time and the journey really creates trust. The journey is the object, not an end result, because employees just want to know that you care, that you want to create a health, healthy-like vibe, where you're respected, that I can be authentically me, and do my best work. And so, so what if you're a little wonky here and there as long as they know the path forward is healthy. When DIBs is an initiative in a training course, you've already lost. It's got to be in how you walk the hallway, it's got to be in how you make your decisions, it's got to be in how you sell the company, and evolve as a company 'cause without DIBs you stagnate. So, with DIBs you can fly faster and further.
