As an employer, driving diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) are important. What's your top tip for helping employees to feel secure, accepted, and supported?
To help employees feel a sense of belonging at work, we asked HR and business professionals this question for their insights. From having open communication to implementing diversity training, here are several things you can incorporate to drive diversity, equality, and inclusion efforts in the workplace.
Here are 10 tips for nurturing an inclusive and diverse workplace:
Stop trying to micromanage your employees if you want them to feel accepted and build trust. Micromanaging has the power to destroy relationships and cause good employees to leave. You hired each of your employees because you felt that they were specifically qualified for their positions, so allow them the ability to work with some autonomy.
You can support them without being a helicopter boss. Demonstrate that you are available to help when they need it, but allow employees the opportunity to overcome issues on their own before they ask for help.
