With voluntary employee turnover costing U.S. companies $1 trillion a year, diversity and inclusion is an area that businesses can't afford to overlook. Furthermore, numerous studies have now shown how the lack of a diverse and inclusive culture has led to high turnover, less innovation and organizational performance problems.

Your DEI program may seem to have all the pieces — A solid, cross-functional council/committee, active ERGs, data on talent acquisition and employee engagement activities, workshops and eLearnings, newsletters, signage and communications supporting the company DEI strategy.

In spite of all this, it is possible that you're still not truly building a culture of diversity and inclusion. To determine if you are indeed developing a diverse and inclusive culture, ask these questions:

  • Are leaders and managers receiving empathy, communication and emotional intelligence training?
  • Are you applying DEI concepts to day-to-day operations?
  • Are your DEI policies and processes fair?
  • Are you measuring the right things, in the right ways?
