Diversity is having a culture that values uniqueness: people of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, and races. Inclusion means inviting diverse groups to take part in company life. If you’re tuned into conversations about HR, you’ve probably heard these terms before. But there’s a third critical piece: belonging. It’s belonging that makes each individual feel accepted for who they are. When you have a diverse talent who feel inclusion and belonging at their team level, organization level, and the company level, you can ensure their wellbeing.
As you agree, employee wellbeing is about more than physiological or mental ill-health – it’s about optimizing the health of all employees, not just reducing the numbers of staff who are diagnosed with medical conditions. Employee wellbeing also extends beyond health, and into happiness as well, and job satisfaction.
For your company to have the best chance of winning, it should embrace diversity, inclusion, and Wellbeing. The following assessment will help you drive the conversation on these objective pillars, hire and retain diverse talent, listen to employees, and integrate best practices into your employee life cycle.
What and how we assess DIW programs?
How the scores are calculated by our assessment?
The above exercise is pretty quick. It can be completed by any stakeholder in about 15-30 minutes, and results in a visual way to represent where one’s Innovation Program technology sits in comparison to industry benchmarks. Additionally, it can be completed by multiple individuals within an organization to calibrate a mutual understanding between their collective Innovation Program departments and/or other internal stakeholders. Maturity (scale of 1 to 10) is explained below.
- Just realized – Process not in place, however there is a realization of the need.
- Initial (chaotic, ad hoc, individual heroics) – the starting point for use of a new or undocumented repeat process.
- Repeatable – the process is at least documented sufficiently such that repeating the same steps may be attempted.
- Defined – the process is defined/confirmed as a standard business process.
- Capable – the process is quantitatively managed in accordance with agreed-upon metrics.
- Efficient – process management includes deliberate process optimization/improvement.
- Innovator – Started challenging status-quo and incremental innovation started at the edges.
- Disruptor – Tangible impact of the innovation has been proven, started institutionalizing the sustainable.
- Market leader – You are nailing it.
- World class – The true north of all.
And the final Report is:
