Corporations are only as good as the people they have and the purpose that those individuals are committed to. When organizations clarify values and what they truly stand for, they build workplaces where employees and employers thrive. Only then, can a business maximize the potential of employee assistance programs, focus on mental health, manage healthcare costs, launch a mentorship-based employee resource group for marginalized groups and carry out other important initiatives. When leadership is living out their values, they can develop employee skills through education that will expand opportunities for team members who will move up or even leave the company and contribute to society in other meaningful ways (and leadership will cheer them on!). When you build talent in an equitable workplace, you build a thriving, healthy organization.
