In almost every facet of life and business, the importance of
diversity and inclusion has gained increasing attention in recent years,
and with good reason: Whether looking at globalization or the growing
size and influence of a Millennial workforce that expects and demands
it, diversity is now viewed as vital to business as it is to society.
But while it is easy to offer up platitudes about the value of
diversity, actually cultivating it in the workplace can be more of a
challenge. For this episode of Incentive: What Motivates, we are
bringing you specific, actionable tips for how to reward the right kinds
of behaviors to create a more diverse, open and communicative
workplace. These tips come in the form of a presentation by Mary Luckey,
director of reward strategy for Maritz Motivation Solutions, given as part of a recentIncentive webcast.
Here she discusses how an organization can cultivate diversity, from
the way job postings are phrased to how particular interactions can be
encouraged and learning about different cultures can be rewarded -- and
why peer-to-peer recognition should be central to any effort encouraging
workers to better understand one another. Listen on to find out more.
