Why is global inclusion essential for organisations?
Global inclusion is more than expanding the outreach of the environment and the people we support – it’s about expanding our mindset as organisations and providing an environment where their workforce can flourish, regardless of where they are from and where they are working.
This requires for organisations to acknowledge the interconnected nature of the world we live in, where consumers more than ever expect businesses to be engaged in social justice and commitment to change.
From increased access to career opportunities, to the increased competition for talent, very few businesses can afford to remain immune to the global context. Considering inclusion from a global perspective will have a powerful impact on your employee experience, your brand awareness and the societies you operate in.
How can Inclusive Employers support you?
Here at Inclusive Employers we work with global brands whose names are known the world over, and have years of experience supporting organisations with international presence. From consultancy to training, our inclusion impact has crossed geographical borders to reach employees all over the globe.
This is how we can support you:
Global Inclusion Week:
An annual week of learning events celebrating inclusion through a global lens, bringing diverse voices to the table to discuss issues that are relevant for businesses operating internationally.
Save the date for the next Global Inclusion Week: 10th to 14th June 2024!
Inclusive Global Allies:
One of our most popular learning experiences delivered through tailored sessions that empower your global workforce on how to be an effective inclusion ally, and gives them the tools to succeed.
You can pick either an expert Inclusive Employers facilitator or through an Train the Trainer delivery, giving you the ultimate tailored experience.
Inclusive Global Leadership Training:
Our Inclusive Global Leadership workshops will empower your leaders to succeed in a complex, unpredictable, and increasingly demanding global environment.
Through this model, we explore in an engaging and positive way how leaders can grow their cultural intelligence, provide safe spaces for an internationally diverse workforce, and motivate teams to deliver on business results.
Creation of your Global Inclusion Strategy:
We can support your organisation to create an impactful, culturally sensitive global inclusion strategy that will help you deliver on short and long-terms objectives, while equipping you with the tools to get your stakeholders on board.
The process may involve us hosting global focus groups, surveying your workforce, delivering powerful workshops for senior leadership, through to building the strategy through consultation.
Global Staff Network Training:
Running a Staff Network can be challenging, and for networks expanding internationally, there are other considerations such as navigating different cultural expectations, to different laws and legislations.
Our training will help your Staff Networks with strategy setting, aligning network objectives to the objectives of the business, and how to influence stakeholders to make impact in a global landscape.
Cultural Awareness Training:
Cultural awareness helps unleash organisational diversity and inclusion, foster good relations with colleagues as well as customers and partners.
This session delivers practical techniques needed for working work in multicultural environments, helping individuals succeed in better understanding and interacting in culturally diverse settings, wherever they may be.
Global reverse mentoring:
Reverse mentoring gives the opportunity for leaders or senior people in the organisation to be mentored by employees who are more junior to them, or from diverse minority groups.
Our Global Reverse Mentoring programme will take this concept one step further, connecting employees from different parts of the globe for an enriching learning experience.
