OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
Diversity@Workplace Consulting Group is an innovative, implementation-focused Diversity & Inclusion consulting and training company for your workplace. We bring no frills, deeply practical Diversity & Inclusion expertise and experience.
Our knowledge and services encompasses all aspects of talent – recruiting, learning and development, succession planning, performance management, and associate engagement – to the Diversity & Inclusion work in your organization for a holistic talent strategy, goal-setting, and programming.
Other consultants leave after making recommendations, we stay to implement them.
When to Use Us
When you are ready to start Diversity & Inclusion in your organization but do not know where or the best way to begin.
When you want to take Diversity & Inclusion in your organization beyond multicultural awareness and training.
When you want your workforce demographic make-up and engagement to change.
We believe in DOING Diversity & Inclusion, not just talking about it.
We believe training alone will NOT bring about change.
We believe Diversity & Inclusion is not only about changing of the minds, it is about changing of practices and processes.
We believe integration is the best method for inclusion at the workplace.
Our approach is a no-frills and practical one.
With our customized “inside-out” consulting service, we embedded ourselves full-time into your organization to fully discover and fully understand root causes that will prevent – or are preventing – full Diversity & Inclusion implementation in your organization. Then, together with the resources from your organization, we put in place specific goals and programs to address those root causes with best practices for sustainable and meaningful change. Most importantly, we do not leave after we make recommendations; we stay to implement them.
Whether it is our onsite facilitation/training or our offsite workshops, we combine our comprehensive talent knowledge and organizational behavior expertise with our experiences of what really works in the workplace to deliver implementable and sustainable techniques, strategies and information.
