FIC Human Resource Partners Gives You NUANCE

When organizations foster inclusive workplace cultures they become  agents of change within the communities they serve. 

To Foster truly inclusive cultures of belonging, organizations must:

  • Encourage continual cultural competency growth among their employees to attract the best talent

  • Lift up historically excluded and underrepresented community members to innovate more effectively

  • Bring each of their employees into a more accepting, equitable, and inclusive mindset to maintain a functioning, healthy culture

  • Create an organizational culture where employees thrive so they can more effectively deliver work and nurture client relationships

Whether you’re an organization that wants to understand how your employees see you or a consultant enabling organizations, our suite of products and services gives you everything you need to foster an inclusive culture of belonging.

Why NUANCE matters
to organizational culture

Fostering an inclusive culture of belonging means balancing the differences across microcultures and aligning them to your larger organizational culture values.

Intersectionality

 

Each person holds more than one identity that can include:

  • Race

  • Gender

  • Sexual orientation

  • Religion

  • Disability

  • Socio-economic background

 

To foster an inclusive culture of belonging, you need to address all forms of systemic inequality that exist within your organization to prevent one from reinforcing another.

Intended vs
Permitted

Sometimes, the culture you try to foster may not be the same as the reality your employees experience.

 

You need to know if:  

  • your employees’ culture experience matches with your intended culture 

or 

  • if the  permitted culture conflicts with your intent.

Macro vs Microcultures

Just like an ecosystem is made up of all the different animals and plants living in it, your organization’s overall macroculture consists of distinct microcultures across offices and departments. 

You need to know if your organization's microcultures: 

  • align to your intended macroculture 

  • work in harmony to create an inclusive culture of belonging
