Looking to Up-Skill Your Team?

Why Training is needed? 

CoQual, a global workplace think tank, defines “belonging” as feeling seen, connected, supported, and proud at work. Improving belonging is good for business. 

Research shows that when employees feel a sense of belonging, their job performance increases (+56%) and turnover decreases (-50%) which is highly valuable for the organization. Yet, women and minorities feel less supported, included and connected than their peers.

Boston Consulting Group conducted a study across 1,700 companies to analyze the relationship between diversity and performance and found that companies with greater managerial diversity - including gender, age, national origin, career path, industry background, and education - achieved 19% higher innovation revenues and 9% higher profit margins. Yet, women and diverse talent face many challenges in the workplace. 

According to the McKinsey Global Institute report, the number of people in the global labor force will reach 3.5 billion by 2030. Yet the competition for global talent will intensify with the shortage of skilled workers. Thus, learning how to lead and manage across cultures will be key to winning the talent war and the global marketplace.
