“Having a DEI strategy makes the difference between having to go to work and wanting to go to work. When you know that your company cares about you, you work harder and stay in your position longer.”
Diversity is a hot topic in the business community, but many employers are lost on how to actually implement a DEI strategy. In our last episode of HR in 15 with Joy Stephens, founder of New Heights, Academic & Leadership Consulting, we discussed the most important element of your DEI strategy (listen to it here). Today, Joy returns to speak with LaToya Velez, supervisor of HR Client Services and our DEI officer here at Prestige PEO, to discuss the “Three Cs” of implementing a DEI strategy. With these in mind, you’ll be able to realize your strategy with your company as a team effort.
- Your team needs to be committed to doing the work
- You need to have your team collaborate and work together
- Finally, your team must encourage communication, answer any questions, and have an open and honest discussion
