Using Inclusion And Equity To Solve Workplace Dilemmas

The topic of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) has been a hot topic for many years without much understanding about what it is and what it looks like in practice; especially for workplace. In this era of “WFH” and “hybrid”, many companies are worried about staff retention and ensuring that colleagues stay connected. “What if colleagues don’t come into the office?” “How do I build engagement amongst my team without face-time?” The answer is simple- treat you colleagues like People, and not “staff”. How to do that? Inclusion and Equity of course.

The Connected Workplace

In the age of the “anywhere office”, technology will play a more vital role than ever.

Work is no longer where you go, but what you do. While the traditional workplace used to be inside the four walls of the corporate office, it is now an ecosystem of employees working from anywhere. Technology will remain a bridge in this new world. What will be equally important is embedding trust and inclusivity in the company culture and giving employees greater ownership and choice on how they want to work in the physical office, at home and anywhere in between.
