Spicy Hotline: Building Greater Inclusion in a Socially Distanced World

Clarrus Consulting Group & Jalapeño Employee Engagement sharing their secret sauce of fostering inclusion at remote workplaces. As more companies shift to remote work following the coronavirus pandemic, management may have to work harder to ensure that all employees feel included and have equal opportunity. In this event, we will be sharing resources and insights on how we can embrace inclusion in our virtual workspaces.

Who We Are

Jalapeño Employee Engagement helps you grow your people to grow your business. With our unique combination of Technology and Professional Services, you and your team will achieve desired results effectively and efficiently.

Our Topic of Discussion

Diversity and inclusion should be one of the core values of the company – and not just a catchphrase. Corporate cultures might have the best tools and technology to make their employees feel connected, but not necessarily included or valued! In the remote reality today, the formation of a well- built diverse and inclusive work environment is not a miracle that happens overnight, it requires a continuous effort from team leaders, managers and employees, as well.

Every remote worker should have the right to enjoy a space where he feels connected, heard and challenged! But how do companies foster an inclusive virtual work community?

Clarrus Consulting Group and Jalapeño Employee Engagement are collaborating to discuss the best practices of fostering inclusion and improving the correlation between diversity and remote workforces.

Join this interesting panel where the panel indulges in a discussion to help teams lead their way to build inclusive cultures and strengthen the connection between workers remotely.

Key Takeaways

We believe in building and educating the community and providing useful resources to them. Here are some learning outcomes that you will be able to take away at the end of this event:

  • How to make diversity and inclusion part of our daily interactions in an online world
  • How to evaluate and optimize inclusion within our team
  • How to provide growth opportunities by becoming a ‘conscious’ and virtual individual and organization
