Technology is a key enabler of diversity and inclusion. Not everyone realises it, but it is. We’ve known it at 5App for a long time. Partly because we understand technology’s potential to bring people together, to enable them to collaborate and communicate and feel engaged with their work and their workplace.
Everybody’s thinking about diversity and inclusion. So much so that LinkedIn Learning’s 2021 Workplace Learning Report found that D&I was the number one development priority for 77% of L&D professionals.
In many ways, 2021 has looked a lot like 2020. Covid-19 has continued to dictate how we all live, work and learn: we started the year with a national lockdown, many of us are still working remotely and our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing remain a top priority.
The hybrid work model is here to stay. Nine out of 10 organisations plan to offer a mix of in-house and remote working post pandemic, according to a study by the management consultancy McKinsey. However, only a third have a detailed vision of what this hybrid model will look like and even fewer – one in ten – have begun communicating and piloting their vision.
Learning and communications platform vendor 5App today announced a partnership with diversity and inclusion experts, All of Us and the launch of the D&I Engagement Hub.
