Culture of Belonging Audit
Why a Culture of Belonging Matters?
According to Better Up, U.S. businesses spend nearly $8 billion each year on Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) training; yet, 40% of employees say they feel isolated at work resulting in lower organizational commitment and engagement. Obviously, D&I training is just a starting point. It doesn’t solve for inclusion.
Moreover, employees experiencing negative workplace interactions, such as having their ideas ignored, having limited control or tools to manage their work, or getting little, if any, growth feedback, eventually disengage -- at an average loss of $13,000 per employee per year. (Gallup)
Companies serious about winning in their marketplace …create an empowered workforce where employees know their voices are being heard, their opinions count, and that they are an instrumental part of the business.

The WillHouse Difference
At WillHouse we’ve learned that an empowered, high-performing workforce is fostered at both the individual and organizational systems levels.
Event based training or off-the-shelf programs may spark awareness and reflection, but rarely do they engender the conversations, data, actions, and systemic shifts necessary to building a Culture of Belonging within your organization.
This is why it is so important to assess your organization's culture of belonging, so that you have a data-based understanding of your employee engagement, organizational culture, and sense of belonging from a DEI lens.
The WillHouse Culture of Belonging (COB) Checklist is a tool that guides you through a short reflection of the current state (emerging, developing and transforming) of inclusion and engagement in your organization. The COB Checklist helps you to assess your organizational health through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion using 7 comprehensive business levers (organizational values, leadership, employee experience, policies and practices, accountability, customer experience, and employer of choice).
The COB Checklist informs you of your current state of DEIB across three stages.
At this stage, your organization is at the beginning of the DEIB journey. Your organization has plenty of room to develop and scale your DEIB efforts.
At this stage, your organization’s commitment to DEIB is evident. Your organization has some foundational elements in place (diversity statement, diversity training, diversity council). However, at this stage, your DEIB efforts have experienced inconsistent implementation throughout the entire organization.
At this stage, your organization’s espoused DEIB values are beginning to align with the lived experiences of your employees. However, there are still areas for the organization to scale and sustain its DEIB efforts into the next evolution of the organization’s life cycle.
What is your current state of DEIB?
After you take the COB Checklist, someone from the WillHouse Team will contact you to discuss your results.
