The benefits of diversity in the workplace are clear. However, recruiting a diverse workforce and annual diversity training are just the beginning.
Ongoing programs to promote diversity help to break down unconscious bias, to increase feelings of inclusion and to ensure D&I education reaches all employees in a meaningful and cost-effective way.
“Ultimately, America's answer to the intolerant man is diversity.”—Robert Kennedy
Here are some ways the SnapComms Internal Communication Channels can help promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Reinforce diversity training
Diversity training needs ongoing reinforcement and may not be widely available to all employees.
Break down barriers
Employees tend to feel more comfortable with "people like me". Fear of appearing racist or conforming to a stereotype can create barriers.
Use a range of communication tools to highlight a diverse workforce. Help diverse employees feel like they belong in the organization.
Attract and retain talent
An organization that has a reputation for positive inclusion is able to better attract and retain talent.
SnapComms provides a range of features to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
