The Importance of Creating a Sense of Belonging

Leaders are working to adjust to the unprecedented demands of the marketplace, supply chain, and prospective employees. This conversation will provide some practical tools, strategies, and stories to assist participants in creating “People-Centered Workplaces”, where everyone feels a sense of belonging.  Current research has determined that employees increasingly struggle to feel a sense of belonging in the workplace. Employees are less interested in returning to an in-person job based upon the micro-aggressions and workplace exclusion they often experience.  The greatest indication of “belonging” for most people is answered by the question, “Do I see people like myself being successful here?” Creating a sense of belonging on a team requires group activities that help people feel accepted and included.
