Poor organizational health can cost companies millions of dollars and can cause confusion among departments and roles, disrupt collaboration, and slow down decision-making.
A positive company culture and having a work-life balance helps attract top talent, retain happy employees, and increase productivity. Hiring is only one aspect of ensuring diversity within an organization. One of the key drivers of diversity is mentorship and apprenticeship. This improves connectedness and two-way dialogues between employees. Inviting employees to meetings and communicating with management can help engage and retain employees. Understanding if these diversity and inclusion investments are leading to desired outcomes requires hard metrics.
