Diversity not only increases creativity and innovation in the workplace. It also is a characteristic that many younger workers are seeking in an employer. Get started building inclusivity now:
- Foster psychological safety. Create a workplace where people are comfortable sharing their true selves and best ideas.
- Listen and learn. Seek real input from employees. Solicit their ideas; and give them a chance to express their feelings and concerns.
- Make sure inclusivity is embedded in your culture. Be careful not to hire workers who are different or unique, then try to fit them into a specific box or mold once they start working.
