  • Beat the ‘Great Resignation’ with these inclusive hacks

Empty office cubicles, resignation and deserted city centers are the new norm. The ‘Great Resignation’ is causing severe labor shortages and businesses to fail. A recent study suggests that to avoid disasters, you only have to tweak a few of your HR approaches.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is the key to prevent employees from leaving. A report by World Economic Forum (WEF), “Improving Workplace Culture Through Evidence-based Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Practices,” suggests that middle managers and senior management play a crucial role in creating a work culture that’s healthy enough to avoid walkouts. 

Here are a few of our recommendations that managers can take to effect change:

Highlight team member’s accomplishments

Ensure that employees from underrepresented groups are allowed to participate in team activities and share their work.

Assign meaningful work

Meaningful work helps employees feel their skills and expertise are respected.

Build strong partnerships

Help employees build their skills and networks by pairing them with peers, then make sure they have access to the resources they need.

Transparent hiring policies

Make sure team members understand how equity and fairness are factored into the process and outcome.

Encourage dissenting opinions

Organizations with healthy dissent are more innovative.

Zero-tolerance for bad behavior

This policy should go beyond behavior that’s legally actionable, such as sexual harassment and discrimination, to include bullying, spreading rumors and microaggressions.

Take ownership for DEI initiatives

Explain how the initiatives are linked to business outcomes and the actions the team can take to support them.

Creating an inclusive culture is no longer a “nice to have.” It is a business imperative, especially in the era of the Great Resignation, according to WEF.
