Gathering Insights on Inclusion: A Data-Driven Approach to Creating an Inclusive Culture

One in every four workers feels like they don’t belong at their company. While the benefits of a diverse workforce are clear, they are only realized if companies focus on belonging and inclusion as a way of retaining talent. Having a way to measure this sentiment is key in helping organizations to understand what is driving employee experiences, as well as break down the divide about whether there are still significant obstacles facing racial and ethnic minorities and women in an organization. Using data gathered from nearly 10,000 American workers, Sarah will be sharing a data-driven approach to measuring inclusion, and how companies can best engage with employees to create a sense of belonging and retain their top talent.

When you lead an HR team, your C-Suite leadership typically comes to lean on you for three primary insights: 1) predicting outcomes; 2) diagnosing issues; and 3) prescribing actions for the workplace. Business analytics has allowed HR professionals to quickly use evidence-based results to provide insights and make decisions where previously we relied primarily on gut instinct.
