Be the Change Within!
The world is witnessing the rightful meaning of the phrase, "Change is the only constant". The social fabric of our workplaces has shifted
rapidly to contain the contagion. When the home becomes the new workplace, creating an environment of belongingness within the closed group
of employees giving them the sense of being valued and that they mattered is imperative in the Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) narrative of any organization.
It is proven by indefinite research and articles
that "belongingness" is not only good for people, but also the business. When an employee feels valued/mattered, efficiency levels are high leading
to increased productivity and eventually adding up to the organization's bottomline.
If one has to look at the world inside out from an external view of the world where we live in constant fears or threats to looking deep inside
within ourselves to the coursing our work towards success. Yes, the universe is throwing constant surprises at us almost each day displacing us
leading to a lack of predictability.
With a lot of VUCA happening around, lives of
people have never been so tangled and chaotic, creating a huge impact on their work cycle. Today, conversations have shifted towards assisting
the change and those who are resisting the change will soon find themselves adapting to the change.
Conversations around D&I have become more relevant today in times of crisis when diversity of thoughts catalyses each and every business
problem to arrive at practical and implementable solutions.
It is certain that there is nothing like a post pandemic scenario. The world's population will soon discover the ways to manage the Covid-19
while performing effectively and efficiently in their both professional and personal lives with a deeper understanding of inclusion.
A crisis is always a headscratcher, be it early or late. The point is how effectively you curb it with minimal or no loss of
revenue and create an ecology of work.
Leaders will have to constantly engage with employees to enable them to accelerate and sustain in the Post Pandemic world.
The Covid has presented us with scenarios that can only be anticipated. But clearly it has given us a new acronym that is to Create
Opportunities so that we Validate our Introspection and Development for a sustainable tomorrow!
