CAPE Inclusion Tracker
Diversity is what we look like, equity is how we treat each other, and inclusion is why we stay.
Inclusion is the hardest to measure but can have the biggest impact on your company. You might be asking yourself, "Why should employers care about furthering inclusion efforts in their workplaces?"
Consider the following:
- Inc Magazine's article, Ineffective Meetings Cost Companies Up To $283 Billion A Year, they revealed that for the average business conference call in the U.S. (which is 38 minutes), there were 13 minutes of interruptions or distractions. That's almost 35% of the call!
- Research shows that inclusive workplaces are six times more likely to be innovative and twice as likely to meet or surpass financial goals. On top of that, employees who feel able to bring their whole selves to work are 42% less likely to plan on leaving for another position within a year.
- A Limeade study of more than 2,000 U.S. workers found that individuals with higher well-being and engagement have higher inclusion. Additionally, employees who feel included at work were more engaged and more likely to recommend their company as a great place to work.
These three examples of how employers and employees alike benefit from ongoing inclusion efforts within their organization. The occasional implicit bias training is not enough. By investing in inclusion tools, you invest in the success and well-being of your organization.
