Taking pride in inclusion: how to measure LGBT+ inclusivity in the workplace
An inclusive workplace culture is one that effectively incorporates differences without eliminating them, and in which people flourish individually and unite as a high performing team. It’s the magic ingredient that allows employees to thrive and grow within their role. An inclusive culture not only helps employees feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work, but also gives them the sense that they truly belong in the organisation.
Research shows that employers taking proactive steps to ensure their workplace is inclusive find their employees are more likely to feel engaged, valued and accepted for who they are. Not only does this benefit individuals and their wellbeing, but it’s also been proven to have significant organisational benefits. These include greater productivity, a high employee retention rate, and more workplace innovation.
