How TeamBuilder Can Help Improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are central to building a strong and sustainable company culture. TeamBuilder by Intuition offers a range of features that can help management and employees alike work towards building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
With the My Team feature, managers have quick access to information on everyone who reports to them. This helps to ensure that all team members are represented and that their voices are heard. Managers can invite new hires when they join the company, and remove old members after they leave. Having clear records of who’s who can help managers make sure that everyone is getting the resources and support they need to succeed.
One-on-one meetings are a great way for managers to connect with their team members. However, without proper preparation, these meetings can be inefficient and ineffective. With the AI powered 1:1 Planner feature, TeamBuilder enables managers to easily plan, schedule, and execute all their meetings. Managers can be more organized and productive with a context-based approach to meetings that ensures they are getting the most out of their time together.
One of the challenges of building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is getting everyone to feel like part of the team. With the IceBreakers feature, managers can welcome new hires with open arms and help them transition to becoming an integral part of the team. IceBreakers offers a set of fun and unique questions that new hires can answer, and then see how everyone else responded as well. This helps to break the ice and allows team members to find common ground.
Good conversation promotes trust and better relationships among team members. With the Banter feature, managers can ask fun and unique check-in questions to give team members something to talk about. This improves company culture by bringing people together and promoting employee engagement. By fostering a sense of community, managers can help build trust among all team members, and this can ultimately lead to a more equitable and inclusive workplace.
Employee recognition is an essential component of building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. With the ShoutOuts feature, team members can use the platform to celebrate each other’s accomplishments and commit to the company’s values. Employee recognition has been shown to reduce stress and absenteeism and reinvigorate employee engagement. Recognizing team members for their contributions can help prevent burnout and create a more inclusive workplace culture.
Team challenges can be a great way to gamify initiatives and increase engagement around important DEI topics, or any topic of your choosing. With the Challenges feature, managers can set up company-wide or department-specific challenges that promote team building and wellness while building a more inclusive culture. These challenges provide a shared goal for team members to work towards, and this can help build community and collaboration among team members.
Finally, TeamBuilder can be integrated with Slack, Google, Office 365 and Microsoft Teams through a simple SSO. This helps to streamline communication and collaboration, which is essential for building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. By avoiding pushback and integrating with the communication platforms your team is already using, managers can make sure team members stay connected and engaged with each other and the work they are doing.
Building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace cannot be achieved overnight. However, TeamBuilder is a tool that can help managers and team members work together to create a more equitable and inclusive culture. By using the features outlined above, companies can foster a sense of community, increase employee engagement, and build a more equitable and inclusive workplace culture.
