Leveraging the true power of Diversity inside your teams has never been more important. Engage your employees and gain your competitive edge.
Workplace Diversity: The Team Advantage™ is designed to improve the ability of your workforce to engage and interact more effectively with co-workers who are different than themselves, and to learn the characteristics and value of High Performing Teams.
74% of employees indicate that they “like their work, and are willing to do more than is expected”.
Only 2/3 of respondents indicate they are “committed to staying” with their company through the remainder of the year.
As few as 21% of these individuals indicate that they may be fully engaged.
Increased global competition has caused many organizations to reduce headcounts to cut costs.
Four courses in The Team Advantage™ series leverage multimedia technology to create an individualized and highly interactive learning environment. The program engages the employee with a virtual workgroup of individuals who are diverse in many ways and have just been assigned to a new team to develop a high performance initiative for their company. Each course is a 30-45 minute interactive learning experience of realistic workplace dynamics.
