This Section provides a valuable insight on how it is possible to measure a company’s inclusiveness. The knowledge of the level of inclusiveness of a company provides managers with an understanding of the status of an organization and allows to identify critical issues and to overcame them with relevant actions. This knowledge is necessary to project the future and to implement innovative strategies to promote inclusion for every company. Acting on the work environment to reach inclusiveness for all, will have several benefits. Inclusion, in fact, is the process that helps to overcome barriers that limit the presence, participation and achievement of workers. In an inclusive workplace employees feel valued and rewarded which contributes to creating a sense of openness where problems are discussed openly and a sense of loyalty to the organization. These, in turn, improve productivity and reduce costs related to absenteeism, turnover and medical claims.
