Today it’s more difficult than ever for CEOs and HR leaders at small and medium organizations to compete for talent, customers and investment dollars. Over half of the US workforce is actively planning to leave their jobs, and 80% of them prioritize inclusion and belonging in their search for a new employer. Moreover, inclusive organizations are six (6) times more likely to be innovative and three (3) times more likely to retain talent.
While the positive impacts of DEI initiatives are widely reported, most of the publicly available research and data are based on studies of larger organizations with expertise and dedicated resources.
Dr. Tiffany Miller, Senior DEI Advisor, and OurOffice CEO, Sonya Sepahban will discuss the early insights on the state of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in small and medium organizations. These findings are based on the initial responses received in Q1 2022 to the first ever DEI survey focused on organizations with less than 2,500 employees which represent over 99% of all employers in the United States. Topics will include:
- Challenges small and medium organizations face today
- Early insights from study if DEI in small and medium organizations
- Recommendations to address the findings
