To develop a strong strategy in this area, it is necessary to understand where you are starting. A combination of quantitative and qualitative information is required to understand your current state, which also allows you to measure progress over time.
Diversity Relationship Indicator™
Diversity Relationship Indicator is a tool that determines how well those in management and leadership positions are managing differences in the work environment and developing effective relationships with others.
Rather than having a single item on their Performance Evaluation, this tool assesses diversity and inclusion competencies in order to provide them with specific and meaningful feedback. It can be used as a stand-alone evaluation or as a Pre/Post Assessment. Initially developed for a group of Sales Managers, individual assessments revealed a strong correlation between managers’ diversity effectiveness and their sales performance.
Team Interaction Profile™
The Team Interaction Profile (TIP) is a team-based assessment that measures how well a team of people who are supposed to be working together are, in fact, working together. In addition, it determines if employees are differently included in the informal network of relationships for any reason, such as years of service or geographic location.
TIP can be used as a diagnostic tool for under-performing teams, or as a pre/post assessment. Team findings and individual reports are provided. For organizations seriously committed to creating an inclusive culture, TIP provides an objective measure of inclusion.
Diversity & Inclusion Assessment
This determines how well an organization is doing with their I&D initiative, and where they need to focus more effort in order to achieve meaningful change. Unlike an employee survey, this assessment is completed by those individuals who are closely connected with their organization’s I&D efforts (Diversity Councils, Employee Resource Groups, Senior Executives, HR/Diversity Leaders). Five categories are scored separately and an overall score is provided as well. Specific recommendations are provided in each category for how to strengthen I&D efforts.
