Inclusion by design

January 7, 2019 Sanjana Saluja

An inclusive organization is one where employees feel included. The destination, the outcome, the product, relative to the idea of inclusion, is that employees consistently feel included, regardless of who they are. NAIOP explores how organizations can create an inclusive experience for their employees.

Inclusion has rapidly become one of the most popular buzzwords relative to the workplace, right up there with strategy and engagement. Organizations say they are inclusive; leaders say they are inclusive; communities, schools, and houses of worship say they are inclusive. In reality, few of these entities can explain what inclusion means in a clear, concise and logical way. We are making progress on diversity (though not in all places), and we really like the idea of inclusion, but it remains for most a vague, ambiguous idea. Vague and ambitious targets, regardless of their popularity, are hard to hit.
