Culture

We assess, develop and build
cultures of equality

Companies are spending more than ever on diversity and inclusion initiatives, but they’re still failing to create environments that value difference.

Research finds that unequal work environments – where employees dread going to work, don’t feel they can be honest with their manager, and may witness or experience sexual harassment or age discrimination – are the primary reason workers quit their jobs. Approximately one in four employees dreads going to work because they do not feel safe, respected, or valued. Inequality creates exclusion and isolation detrimentally impacting innovation, productivity, engagement, and retention. 

When businesses create a culture that fosters a sense of belonging and inclusion it results in a 56% increase in job performance, a 50% drop in turnover risk, and a 75% reduction in sick days. For a 1,000-person company, this translates to an annual saving of more than $5M; for a 10,000-person company, it’s more than $50M – according to a Harvard Business Review study.

Awareness

We partner with companies to assess inequality using our Culture Equality Index and our Family Friendly Workplace Index to measure the behaviours and norms that create the lived experience of inequality. Through our assessment, benchmarking and reporting tool we provide teams, departments and entire organisations with an in depth assessment of how inequality is being experienced.

Understanding

Promoting and supporting diversity in the workplace is an important aspect of good people management - it’s about valuing everyone in the organisation as an individual. However, to reap the benefits of a diverse workforce it’s vital to have an inclusive environment where everyone feels able to participate and achieve their potential. Through our development programs like the Creating Psychological Safety and Family Friendly Workplace Culture Program, we help organisations to deepen employees' understanding of how behaviour creates different lived experiences of inequality.

Action

We partner with our clients to accelerate equality and develop their diversity and inclusion strategy, from communication and training to addressing workplace behaviour and evaluating progress. We also offer train the trainer programs for all our content and provide Human Resource teams with D&I development and coaching.
