Build a More Equitable, Profitable Workplace
Don’t Let Racial Inequity Impact Your Bottom Line
Employee turnover due to racial inequity cost U.S. businesses up to $171 billion over the last five years. That number is tied to something that was previously hard to measure: a lack of workplace empathy. According to the Blue Ribbon Commission Report on Racial Equity, developing inclusive workplaces is impossible without first creating empathetic work cultures where employees and employers learn to appreciate differences and different perspectives. That’s where the value of a SHRM membership comes in. Membership provides access to the latest diversity, equity and inclusion news, resources, tools and complete HR solutions to help you build a better world of work. It now even includes access to a special members-only empathy report. Leverage the report’s insight to objectively measure where your organization stands and where it needs to grow to become a more inclusive environment.
