Building a culture of belonging

Building a culture of belonging

Employees with a strong sense of belonging are ten times more likely to recommend their company as a place to work. They are also more likely to feel enthusiastic about their work.

You feel a sense of belonging when you feel connected and secure within a community.

  1. Welcomed
  2. Known
  3. Included
  4. Supported
  5. Connected
