The Business Case for Employee Engagement

Inclusion vs. Diversity

Natalie Holder-Winfield is an international speaker and employment lawyer who uses compelling case studies to update her clients on the best practices for increasing employee retention, improving diversity and inclusion, and staying compliant. Yale Medical School, the law firm of Wiggin & Dana, Time Warner, Proskauer Rose, the United States Department of Agriculture, and The United Way of Greater New Haven are just a few of her clients.

Top Ten Barriers to Inclusion

Natalie's popular program exposes the most common micro-inequities that drive some of our best employees out of our organizations and provides strategies to improve diversity in recruitment, retention and promotion. When most of us are made to feel like outsiders because of the top ten barriers to inclusion, this significantly impacts our ability to feel engaged in our organizations. In a 2012 Society of Human Resources Management survey, 600 managers expressed that employee engagement was a top priority. Yet, in 2012, a Gallup polled 1.4 million employees and found that nationwide only 30% of employees were engaged and nearly one in five workers was actively disengaged. Why is employee engagement so important to organizational success? Researchers have found that employee engagement affects nine performance outcomes, including higher productivity and higher profitability. And, most important, engagement impacts our ability to innovate.
