Culture of Belonging Audit
Belonging is the feeling of being in a place of psychological safety where being one’s full self is embraced and valued. A culture of belonging is an organization that engages the full uniqueness of each employee in order to bring out the employee's full potential. In a culture of belonging diverse points of views are valued and necessary for innovation to thrive. Moreover, a culture of belonging engenders loyalty and high levels of productivity.

The CBA provides you specific actions you can take in order to enhance/create a workplace culture that produces employee loyalty, high productivity and increased customer experience.
