Developing a Sense of Belonging

Creating a sense of belonging can feel tough when it isn’t already built into your company culture. Fostering belonging in the workplace means that people of all backgrounds get a seat at the table and feel heard, seen, and recognized for their contributions. 

Two benefits of bringing belonging to the forefront of your culture are:

1. Belonging fosters team collaboration.

2. Allies prevent exclusion.

 

Creating a sense of belonging at work can make a huge difference in employee happiness, productivity, performance, and retention. 

 

Ask yourself: How can you create an organizational culture committed to belonging?
