Supporting better work-life integration through a prism of diversity:
he research is clear. An employee’s satisfaction level with their personal and family life is one of the strongest predictors of employee wellbeing. And wellbeing directly correlates with engagement, productivity and the bottom line. Millenials and Gen Z are the most likely to make career decisions based on the ability to satisfy multiple priorities in their lives in a way that is meaningful to them.
Now let’s talk about work-life fit – an individual’s perceived ideal interplay between work and personal priorities – family or otherwise, and how they feel diversity is acknowledged and valued. It’s different for everyone. How do leaders of an organization support each employee’s desire to bring their whole selves to work? How do they ensure that they capitalize on the diversity of their teams and focus on the commonalities, not just differences? How do they support their teams in their desire for work-life fit?
Unconscious bias is the number one factor impacting diversity & inclusion outcomes in today’s workplaces. It informs the way we view ourselves as well as others. Education related to understanding the role that unconscious bias plays in our daily interactions can greatly improve: (a) outcomes/interactions with customers, (b) employee effectiveness and morale, and (c) the ability for companies to best reflect the communities in which they operate.
Plus One Meetings offers a series of programs designed to educate your teams about the impact of unconscious bias and help you highlight your work-life offerings and employee success stories while supporting the needs of employees to feel successful at work and at home.
Each session is offered as a one to two hour presentation and includes pre-work/needs surveys for participants as appropriate. Each session will be customized to address your specific goals and the needs of your workforce. Sessions may be recorded for future internal use only. Sessions can be offered in any order and are best offered as a series.
