The Business Case for Employee Engagement

The Business Case for Employee Engagement

Inclusion vs. Diversity

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. 

Natalie graduated from New York University, Tulane Law School, and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth's Executive Education program. She founded the New York State Bar Association's Labor & Employment's Diversity Fellowship; she was named one of Fairfield County's Top 40 Under 40 Business professionals and Diversity MBA Magazine top 50 Business Leaders under 50; and she was recently appointed to the New York University Board of Trustees. And in 2013, NYU honored her with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award. 

The American Bar Association is publishing her next book, Exclusion: Strategies for Increasing Diversity in Recruitment, Retention, and Promotion (2014), which examines how subtle bias interferes with innovation in organizations and the strategies for improving inter-group relations. Her first book, Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse Workforce: New Rules for a New Generation, provides human resource managers, diversity officers, managers, employees and students with practical strategies for improving intergenerational communication and offers ideas for creating inclusive workplace cultures. The book is used to facilitate discussions at conferences, orientations, meetings, roundtable discussions, recruitment events and diversity training sessions.  Natalie also writes for the Huffington Post, Diversity Insight Magazine, and Diversity Executive. Her commentary has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Law Journal, and Good Morning Connecticut. 

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.
