I am delighted to announce that I am now an Advisory Board Member of A New Normal. This is another exciting development in the Hello Social Media journey and one that I am very proud of.
A New Normal helps businesses to see the benefits of an inclusive culture. Tricia Driver the Founder and CEO is so passionate about her business - she strives for every individual to be comfortable to bring their full selves to work.
The stats that are out there make for very depressing reading but highlight the importance the role A New Normal will play in the business world.
Only 1/3 of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community felt comfortable being "out" at work.
48% of people with a mental illness don’t feel comfortable talking about it at work.
More than half of women recently surveyed have experienced sexual harassment at work, but only 27% of those felt they could report their experience.
Tricia says 'Research shows that where people feel included at work, they are much more likely to be high performers, more loyal, likely to stay longer, and be more productive. The mission of A New Normal is to support organisations in the creation of genuinely inclusive working environments which enable individuals to bring their real selves to work every day.'
If you are part of an organisation that strives to be more inclusive take a look at A New Normal and perhaps they can help your business move forward.
