Historical, geographic, economic, and leadership experiences define the cultural identity of an organization. Whether public or private, organizations do not operate in isolation, rather, they are constantly interacting with outside entities within socially acceptable norms that are constantly changing in an increasingly diverse, interconnected, and interdependent landscape. Learn how organizations can use Equity, Diversity, an Inclusive Culture, and Thoughtfulness (EDICT) to meet these new and exciting challenges.
For most of the 20th century, conformity within the workplace and in public spaces was the standard. We now see increasing displays of individuality and cultural diversity within previously homogeneous work groups and public settings. Add to this the rapidly increasing technological environment that requires continual innovation and creativity to remain relevant, and even a local company must think about their global image. Implementing the EDICT model is a necessary business imperative and strategy to stay competitive.
The way we hired (locally), and the people we will hire in the future (globally) requires companies that want to be successful to change the way they do business! Attracting and retaining the best and the brightest employees while providing quality service to their diverse customers, requires thoughtfulness and intentionality. The competition for skilled labor and an increased customer base will require a differentiator to entice and retain the best and the brightest talent. Company culture through EDICT© is that differentiator. EDICT©will help you transform your culture to one of belonging and inclusiveness.
