How inclusivity can increase engagement and collaboration

Inclusive
Enhance your career
Professional values

Being inclusive means accepting a variety of cultures, lifestyles, and practicing integration that is comprehensive and overarching. This includes how someone talks to, behaves towards or acts toward other people. Individuals who are inclusive are particularly welcoming to all kinds of people.

In the workplace creating an inclusive work environment means respecting individual and group diversity, and supporting diversity and inclusion throughout the organisation. Developing cultural competence with the attitudes, skills, and behaviors requisite, allows employees and teams to work cross-culturally.

Leaders will push an inclusion culture if it aligns with their personal values and/or if it increases engagement and collaboration. If employees feel respected, valued, and connected to others, it will increase productivity and loyalty.
