Jennifer Kraszewski, Paycom vice president of human resources

Dickens Aubourg, Paycom director of client learning

Creating an atmosphere of inclusion starts with the hiring process and extends through initiatives and conversational channels that make employees feel understood for the duration of their careers

Crucially, diversity means more than demographic differences. It also applies to the differing viewpoints and perspectives that combine to form the intellectual and emotional fuel behind a successful organization.

Is your company benefiting from diverse points of view? What programs could be implemented to instill a greater sense of belonging within your organization’s culture?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is joined by Kraszewski and Aubourg to discuss:

  • the value of having a workforce with employees from all backgrounds and walks of life
  • why HR and leadership should provide employees an outlet for sharing their thoughts and feelings
  • how to foster a culture where employees feel safe to share their stories through open dialogue and be their authentic selves
  • the roles recruiting and continuous development through training play in building a more diverse workforce

Learn more about how to foster a culture where employees feel safe to share their stories by registering for our Nov. 24 webinar, “A Sense of Belonging: Crafting the Right Diversity and Inclusion Strategy.”
