BelongingIQ helps employers increase employee engagement and boost workplace experience. We do this by providing novel, bespoke tools to create diverse, inclusive, safe and engaged workplaces rooted in Belongingness. Our approach is based on the view that diversity, inclusion and safety foster belongingness, and high belongingness is linked to increased productivity, better job performance and satisfaction, increased retention and team work, among others.
We are passionate about infusing workplaces with belongingness. Because we know it’s many benefits for individuals, teams and organizations at large. Among those benefits to organizations is a high sense of engagement that results from a sense of belonging. So, to help our clients increase engagement, improve performance, embed diversity and inclusion, and boost retention, we provide them tools to help them reimaging and then recreate organizational culture by increasing their Belongingness Quotient. We deliver this through our proprietary Belongingness Quotient Model, individual services or a combination of services.
Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of a high belonging culture, and hallmarks of a people- focused, customer- centric, innovative organization. Within this specialty, our primary focus is helping organizations demystify diversity and inclusion to educate their people and get “more hands on deck”, and to embed diversity and inclusion within their organizations. Our services here therefore include program or policy design and implementation support, chats, training and talks or speaker series.
The impact of the pandemic has left many organizations grappling with the Great Resignation, disengagement and even lower morale. With the understanding that belongingness has a high positive correlation with engagement and performance, we educate organizations, and provide consulting and programs that help them improve engagement.
A speak up culture is, to us, one that allows a free exchange of ideas, feedback and engagement in a respectful an inclusive manner. We see speak up as far more than just reporting complaints. That’s why our focus with this specialty is on helping organizations redefine Speak Up, and redesign their speak up programs and policies to a version that still promotes safe reporting of complaints, but goes well beyond that to improve psychological safety and foster a sense of belonging among their people.
Many organizations are committed to diverse and inclusive workplaces. However, many organizations focus on large, visible minority or marginalized groups while missing less visible minorities or marginalized groups. Our focus within this specialty is on raising organizational awareness about this gap, and equipping them with the proper tools to ensure that single parents, poor or socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals, immigrants and veterans/veteran spouses are as visible and heard within the larger DEI conversations, programs and action plans.
