I am extremely proud to say that my old company, HR Solutions, Inc., was the first research firm to prove there is a near-perfect correlation between employee engagement and diversity & inclusion. Thus, the meaningful outcome of this research study was that if you do have a keen interest in world-class employee engagement, you better care about diversity & inclusion. (If any of you would like a copy of this research study, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am also excited to announce that I have seen a noticeable uptick in the number of companies that are instituting training programs to adjust to the predominantly virtual workplace in which we now find ourselves. I have had multiple firms reach out to me and ask me to: train their remote workers on how to be the best virtual workers, train their managers on how to be world-class virtual managers, and establish fair and equitable criteria for how organizations might downsize from their pre-pandemic workforce.
We are indeed all in this together.
Stay safe and have fun,
