HR Happy Hour 360 - Creating a More Inclusive Workplace
Hosts: Trish McFarlane, Steve Boese
Guest: Dr. Laura Hamill, Chief People Officer and Chief Science Officer, Limeade
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish were joined by Dr. Laura Hamill of Limeade to talk about inclusion in the workplace, how it is different from diversity, and how organizations can become more inclusive.On the show, Laura shared her definition of inclusion, how it differs from diversity, even though the two ideas are almost always paired, and how inclusion needs to be something that organizations keep top of mind.
Laura also shared some of the findings from research from the Limeade Institute on how it is the behavior of peers that matters in the workplace when it comes to worker's feelings of inclusion and this is where many organizations fall short. We also touched upon the difference between being truly inclusive and just being 'nice' in the workplace. Finally, Laura shared some ideas on how inclusion needs to fit into a holistic wellbeing program encompassiing things like wellness, engagement and innovation.
We also talked about winter weather, dog names, and whether or not 'Friends' was really a New York show.
This was a really interesting and fun conversation - thanks so much Laura for joining us.
