Rapid innovation and globalization has had significant impact the global workforce, changing how we work and lead within our organizations. Today’s organizations are more diverse than ever before and in more ways than we could have ever known. As the workplace becomes more culturally and age-diverse, learning to embrace these changes is essential to not only survive—but thrive—in this new era of innovation and disruption.
But why are so organizations getting it right? Organizations are still struggling to recruit, engage and retain diverse talent because their focus has NOT been in the right place. All of the efforts made into more diverse recruitment materials and processes and more inclusive policies and benefits packages will not succeed if the culture of the organization does not foster belongingness. To feel a sense of belonging is a fundamental human emotional need to be connected to others and accepted as a member of a group.
