A Sense of Belonging is Essential in Every Workplace

It creates meaning for employees that enables them to connect to your organization. If you haven’t already heard this, here are some numbers:

Welcome to a Belonging Organization

In cultures of Belonging, people are valued for who they are and seen as vital contributors. We celebrate the unique talents, experiences, or perspectives each person brings to an organization because it’s essential that we all feel welcomed in our communities, regardless of whether we have different backgrounds than others or not! There is no correct answer when building this environment.

However, by examining behaviors together with awareness built in about what changes need to be made, we can help create spaces where everyone feels accepted while working towards something more significant.

The Right Culture is Everything

Building a Belonging culture is the intelligent thing to do. When employees believe they Belong, their engagement and commitment increase significantly, as do innovative ideas that lead directly towards better business results for your company!

It was vital to our Racial Equity Journey initiative’s success to partner with a team that takes the time to get to know us, learn about our culture, and offer options for the opportunities we have to enhance the employee experience at PepsiCo.
The PepsiCo Let’s Talk thought leadership series was designed to help people leaders and individual contributors create inclusive environments. The thought leaders and their content from real-life experiences helped open the minds of our team members and drive behavior changes for better business outcomes. In addition, the series provided resources and tools for employees to continue conversations during their day-to-day interactions with others while living PepsiCo’s Core Values.

To make the Suffolk County government a career destination, I needed a data-driven starting point for where we are as a Belonging Organization. As a result, we administered the Belonging Organization Index (BOI), gained many new insights, validated some of our understanding, and were shocked by several outlying sentiments. Using this unique approach, we enhanced our strategy, and are developing plans to correct and modify opportunities for employees in the County. The BOI is informing our development of success measures that show how we’re making a material difference to become the employer of choice on Long Island.
