Creating a culture of Belonging fosters psychological safety, encourages productivity, collaboration, and improves the overall well-being and resilience of your team.
Never before has the need to attract and retain top talent been more critical. And the companies who will come out ahead, invest in Belonging.
As Brene Brown defines it, “Belonging is being accepted for you. Fitting in is being accepted for being like everyone else. If I get to be me, I belong. If I have to be like you, I fit in.”
Belonging has the power to transform your recruitment and retention initiatives as well as enhance your Diversity & Inclusion programs. Harvard Business Review reports the bottom-line benefits of workplace belonging include:
- 56% increase in job performance
- 50% drop in turnover risk
- 75% reduction in sick days
- 167% increase in employer promoter score
- Savings of average $4,500 per person annually when engagement is improved
Concrete examples of how to build Belonging into your talent acquisition and management practices.
