Promises Over Perks: Designing your work culture for equity

Jeff Melnyk May 13, 2021

The systemic shift we need to see for a more just and equitable world isn’t confined to our communities. As leaders we have a role to play in ensuring our workplaces are inclusive and designed to ensure everyone can thrive – where people are seen for their individual needs, and valued for their contribution

It’s what employees are looking for now. The post-pandemic talent exodus points to a demand for meaningful work, in a culture that champions culture-add. Gone are the perks of the past used to attract people – replaced by promises of flexible, connected, rewarding places where everyone can grow.

Join us for a rich discussion on how to create an equitable employee experience based on promises over perks. We’ll look at case studies and real practical examples, and outline how to elevate DEI efforts to shift the system of your work culture. Through co-creative breakouts we’ll invite you to rethink the design of the experience of your culture, and give you practical tips to take back into your organization.
