Essential conversations to create happier, healthier, more inclusive workplaces.
Culture is key
Today’s workplace is more diverse and flexible than ever before, but it is also smarter.
This is because we have discovered the single biggest factor driving success — culture. Now that we know how central inclusive culture is to business performance and job satisfaction, leaders at all levels are challenged to find ways to create belonging within their organisation, so that everyone can bring their unique gifts and strengths to the table.

5 Reasons Why
1. The ESG revolution is here
The ESG approach (Environmental, Social and Governance), is transforming the world of work. Organizations are being challenged to bring transparency and accountability to their DEI, social justice, and environmental commitments. As we enter this brave new era, organizations must choose to take the lead, or be left behind.
2. An inclusive workplace is a high-performing workplace
- Workers in inclusive environments are up to 83% more engaged
- Inclusive companies are more likely to attract the best talent, and to keep it
- Diverse companies are 70% more likely to capture new markets
- Inclusive companies bring in 1.4x more revenue
- Psychological safety recognised as the #1 factor for successful teams.
3. Courageous conversations build belonging
According to the World Economic Forum, "Shared dialogue is one of the best tools we have for creating inclusion. By giving everyone a voice, we build belonging while fostering empathy and social cohesion."
4. Employees are suffering from a lack of connection
Did you know that 65% of people who switched to remote work during the pandemic said they felt less connected to their coworkers? And that some management experts believe this disconnection is a contributing factor in the Great Resignation?
It’s vital for every workplace to invest in fostering a sense of culture and community, but this is especially important for workplaces that offer remote or hybrid work.
5. The definition of leadership is changing
According to a 2021 Leadership Survey, inclusive values such as empathy, integrity, connectedness, belonging, trust and diversity are on the rise when it comes to successful leadership. While more individualist values (such as risk-taking, courage, drive and initiative) are falling in priority.
This is good news for everyone as research shows that teams with inclusive leaders are:
- 17% more likely to report that they are high-performing
- 20% more likely to say they make high-quality decisions
- 29% more likely to report behaving collaboratively
Our Better Workplace Series is a great tool for inclusive leaders to give everyone a voice, while fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging in their workplace.
"Complex issues are really brought down to a level that any individual can relate to. That shows the thoughtfulness that [Inclusivv] put into creating these experiences.”
"Our goal was always to make a difference... and so, seeing the 90% statistic around people wanting to take action and do something following the event, it was impressive and truly made us feel like we were doing something."
"[Inclusivv] enabled us to reach and engage with sectors of the regional community we had little or no previous relationships with."
