Briefing Paper: Diversity and Inclusion: Emerging Issues

The purpose of this Briefing Paper is to explore the challenges associated with building more inclusive workplaces for racial/ethnic minority colleagues, and the emerging opportunities and challenges around inclusion in remote working environments. Specifically, we look at how the Black Lives Matter movement is reshaping conversation and practice, and we explore what HR can do – in practical terms – to harness the new opportunities remote working brings for diversity while making sure that teams maintain inclusive practices.

Data-driven Corporate Health Management

The rising cost of health care is showing no signs of slowing down. To tackle head-on the underlying health issues of the workforce and the associated rising claim costs to the employer, it is necessary to transform health and well-being management into a rigorous data-driven strategy. The author suggests using a dashboard as foundation for targeted interventions to elevate employee health and engagement and to improve the profitability of organisations. The new frontier is predictive analytics of future claims ratios and prevalence of health conditions.

CRFCast - HR Insights from the Corporate Research Forum: How to Connect with People in a Virtual World with Nick Morgan

Face-to-face communication is becoming rarer in the modern workplace, with ever more interactions taking place virtually. However, research shows that virtual communication is much less effective, and it’s hard to build trust that’s essential to effective relationships at work. In conversation with Nick Morgan, author of Can You Hear Me? How to Connect with People in a Virtual World, we discuss the pitfalls, how to improve communication in remote and/or virtual working environments, and the role HR policies can play.

Creating an Inclusive Culture

Progress towards diversity has not always met the promise of investments made. One of the underlying reasons for this is that organisations have focused on increasing the number of employees from underrepresented groups, rather than addressing the organisation culture that determines whether people feel included, and thrive. This research report explores what an inclusivity and an inclusive culture looks like, and sets out practical recommendations for improvement. It focuses on two key aspects that shape the culture: the values and attitudes of leaders, and the systems and processes that define how organisation operates. CRF members can access the report freely by logging in on the website.
