In brief: Research has shown that diverse and inclusive work environments are more likely to produce engaged employees, leading to higher productivity and business performance. Given the impact of engagement on broader business profitability, corporate leaders increasingly recognize engagement as an important strategic imperative. As firms evaluate the various aspects of operational risks, directors should consider workforce engagement as a critical indicator of organizational health.

This resource can help your board to

  • discuss the impact of employee engagement on company performance,
