    The 2022 SHRM Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge (BASK) defines culture as the basic beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors and customs shared and followed by members of a group, which give rise to the group’s sense of identity.

    Having an inclusive work culture provides the context for everything we do in HR and how employees experience their work. In this session we will discuss ways that the HR leader can work with management to foster a more inclusive culture. 

    The session will deal with these key learning points:

    • HR's responsibility to ensure an inclusive work culture exists in the organization; 
    • How to gain top leader support for creating and maintaining an inclusive culture;
    • How to work with managers who are not as inclusive (as they need to be); 
    • How to know when change is needed; 
    • How to protect the culture.

    Join us for this interesting and interactive information session.
