What happens if your office uses the concept of Inclusion?
An example of using Inclusion from the world-famous Tech company!
At present, we can see that having talent employees within the organization alone may not be enough to make the organization efficient. It is, therefore, no surprise that many leading companies are starting to pay more attention to their employees, especially caring for their employees to ensure that they are truly happy working within this organization and this is one of the mechanisms. It is important that leading organizations, especially world-class organizations, have begun to adopt the concept of Inclusion (open to everyone) in which ‘every employee’ within the organization is recognized, respected, valued and supported in their work. Especially when in the process of having to make a decision and integrates the differences of all employees in order to work together in harmony. So what happens if your office adopts the Inclusion concept? If you’re ready, go check it out!
1. Employees are treated equally
The heart of the Inclusion concept is to treat all employees equally. Without discrimination, age, race, skin color, religion, belief, etc., because everyone in this world has fundamental differences. Therefore, when entering the same organization it should be open to everyone and allow everyone to use their abilities to the fullest. Avoid potential bias in the organization. The following advantages are employees are more dedicated to their work and are able to create new, high-quality work because they are confident that when the results are good, they will be compensated appropriately and fairly.
2. Employees can express their opinions honestly
Many times, different opinions of employees can result in innovative ideas for the company. However, some organizational cultures do not allow employees to express their opinions as openly as they should. And employees are afraid that if they express opinions that are different from the majority. They will be viewed badly or will be discriminated against later. Therefore, if any organization adopts the concept of Inclusion, which may be in the form of rules, policies, etc., used to accept and be ready to understand the different opinions of all employees. You can be confident that employees will be more open to expressing diverse and frank opinions and the work will have a better chance of success.
3. Employees feel like part of the organization
It is said that if any organization with a large number of employees feels like a part of the organization. The organizations will have more opportunities for growth because employees feel committed and want to make the organization successful. But to make employees feel like this must first come from satisfaction in the organization. There are many factors that affect employee satisfaction. Whether it’s the job, salary, career advancement opportunities. Including the matter of the atmosphere in the workplace with colleagues as well, if inclusion is used by allowing everyone to do various activities together, such as organizing a workshop that employees are interested in or providing welfare such as maternity leave benefits for both female and male employees who need to support their wives after giving birth, or maternity leave benefits for all employees. Employees will appreciate that the organization values them equally. In addition, employees will feel more part of the organization. It’s also a way to keep talented people working in the organization for a long time!
It’s no surprise that we’re seeing more and more big companies focusing on inclusion, many of which are included in the management concept DEI (Diversity = Diversity / Equality = Equality / Inclusion = openness to all) which supports diversity and accepts the diversity of employees in the organization. ‘Google Company’ is another example of a company that took the concept of Inclusion to be inserted within the organization as well. According to Jackie Wang, Country Director of Google Thailand said in an interview with The Standard, Google has set up Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s), which is a collection of diverse employees, such as Women group, Pride, LGBTQ+, Muslims, etc., ERG’s is an important platform for diverse employees at Google to come together and raise awareness of each other through organizing. This is an advantage that employees will not feel left alone and if there is any problem whether it is a problem in work, finance, life, there are still colleagues in the group to listen to. There is also an Employee Assistance Program to support finding professionals to consult with employees correctly.
In conclusion, even if the organization wants to develop an excellent product or service but if neglects or does not give importance to existing employees. It is difficult for an organization to grow with quality because ’employees’ are the most important asset in every organization’s existence. If the organization can make employees satisfied and feel one with the organization. We can assure you that the success of the company is within your reach!
