Many organizations today talk about the concept of inclusivity as part of their diversity initiatives. But what does inclusivity actually mean at work? And why is it important to the staffing industry?
When we talk about inclusivity at Curate Partners, we’re talking about creating an environment where everyone feels supported to do their best work and to be their authentic selves at work. From the employer perspective, that means:
- Listening to employees and their concerns
- Making everyone feel welcome after they join
- Creating spaces where people can be themselves at work
- Paying attention how we represent our own company
Inclusivity is critical to creating a truly diverse company. That’s because diversity is about more than simply recruiting people with different backgrounds and perspectives to an organization. It’s also about retaining people and supporting their long-term development after they’ve joined the company; and ensuring that all voices are equally valuable. Inclusivity intersects with diversity to build productive, happy workplaces—and at Curate Partners, we believe that all our employees deserve to grow and to be heard, however long they stay with us.
