Inclusion in the workplace is more important than ever before. As our world becomes increasingly diverse, businesses must create a culture where everyone feels welcome and valued.

This is the right thing to do, but it’s also good for business. Yet, many organizations still struggle to measure the impact of their strategies and communicate that impact. So how do you get there?

Measuring the degree to which an organization makes all people feel respected, accepted, supported, and valued is challenging. Organizations can begin by checking in with employees. After all, employee feedback is the most useful data source for measuring inclusion. The challenge is asking the right questions.

According to the Gartner Inclusion Index, questions should focus on seven key factors:

  • Fair treatment
  • Integrating differences
  • Decision-making
  • Psychological safety
  • Trust
  • Belonging
  • Diversity

Armed with data and analysis, employers can take action to identify concerns and create change. iDisability® can help. Over 4 million business users across various industries have already used our 40 e-learning modules to educate and support their staff. Discover how we can help you.
