Creating and maintaining a workplace where employees feel included, respected, and able to be their best selves means improved wellbeing, stronger relationships, and increased motivation and productivity. WeSpire’s inclusive culture module helps companies cultivate vibrant, engaging, and encouraging workplaces where innovation thrives and big goals advance.
The term “diversity, equity, and inclusion” has become so common that it can be easy to miss the different meaning of each word. A diversity of culture in the workplace is a result of practices, values, traditions, or beliefs of employees based on race, age, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or gender identity, expression, and presentation. An equitable culture identifies the specific needs and requirements informed by demographic traits and cultivates an understanding of what each person needs and wants to be successful in the workplace. An inclusive culture is one where everyone accepts and values the differences we all bring to the table. Our research-based approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) encourages employees to participate and proactively promote inclusive culture in the workplaces.
Why is an inclusive culture important?
Creating a workplace where employees feel included, respected and able to be their best selves means improved wellbeing, stronger relationships, and increased productivity. Organizations who foster DE&I in the workplace see higher levels of effectiveness in employee engagement, productivity, net promoter scores, and customer satisfaction. These positive effects are ultimately reflected in the triple bottom line of their business.
The WeSpire platform connects employees to your organization’s unique mission and values, helping them achieve company goals. Programs supporting diversity, inclusion and belonging can be run and measured on the platform, ensuring employees receive recognition for shaping a welcoming community.
