Ways to create an inclusive workplace model

#1. Practice & Focus on inclusive leadership strategies

While building an inclusive culture, it’s not only enough to hire people of different nationalities, genders, and skin colors but also everyone needs to feel that they are truly welcome, safe, and free to be themselves in your workplace.

Build out educational resources for your leaders to become more inclusive and diversely aware. Educate and hold them accountable for their actions.

Take a close look at your company’s recruiting tactics to make sure your approach to hiring is with the goal of fostering inclusion. Make inclusive recruitment an integral part of your company’s DNA to amplify the company’s future, cultivate your workforce, and invest in the team as a whole.

#2. Provide a safe workplace environment

When you create a safe and inclusive workplace for your employees, they feel comfortable, welcomed, safe, and confident with their self-defined identities. This type of workplace setting leads to interesting conversations, sharing their ideas, and also increases your employees’ commitment towards their work and to your organizations as a whole.

#3. Make your policies and guidelines accessible

Ensure policies and guidelines are easily accessible to your employees. The purpose of policies is to help your organization tie together your mission, vision, values, and culture.

Inclusive workplaces have clear policies in place that integrate and support everyone regardless of their background or expertise. Company leaders need to encourage employees to practice inclusivity on a daily basis.

Create a safe zone, say an anonymous channel, where your employees can share their thoughts and concerns.

#4. Recognition and transparency

Recognition drives employee engagement and boosts employee morale. Regularly evaluate and scrutinize your employees, support them, and provide them with a clear vision to follow. 

The most important component of a successful inclusive strategy is openness and transparency. There should be an open commitment to strategy and goals, accurately measuring and reporting progress. If you are real with them, then chances are higher that you will get the same in return.

#5. Maximize joy and minimize fear

By providing ongoing training and resources for your workforce, you build a greater sense of purpose among your workforce. Allow your employees to speak for themselves and what they represent. This way you maximize joy and minimize fear of people being discriminated against or misunderstood. Enable your workforce to learn.
