Introduction to Belonging
Belonging is only important to the employees you want to engage and retain.
A recent Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends survey of over 10,000 business and HR leaders reported ‘Belonging’ as the top human capital issue that organizations face today. Seventy-three percent of respondents agreed that fostering a sense of belonging was important to their organization’s success with 93% agreeing that a sense of belonging drives organizational performance.
Abraham Maslow identified belonging as the third fundamental human need, and organizations that prioritize fostering cultures where individuals can achieve a sense of belonging outperform those that do not. From our decades of experience working with organizations across a wide range of industries and our extensive research on the topic, we’ve come to understand that belonging happens at the intersection of Inclusion, Engagement and Psychological Safety.
The Talent Dimensions’ Introduction to Belonging program provides a foundational understanding of belonging and why it is critical for organizational and individual performance. This highly interactive session provides participants the opportunity to reflect on the drivers of each of the three elements of belonging, to explore the behaviors that result in employees at all levels achieving a sense of belonging and to practiceconversations that support creating a culture of belonging.
This 90-minute program is available in both in-person classroom and virtual instructor-led options.
