Creating a sense of belonging can help business leaders who are looking to keep current employees engaged and attract future talent.
“While there are no silver bullets to fix the talent issue, business leaders can increase an employee's intent to stay by increasing their sense of belonging,” says Tiffany Crosby, CPA, CGMA, MBA, chief learning officer at OSCPA in the March/April issue of CPA Voice.
Belonging taps into a basic human need, Crosby said, that transcends all cultural and diversity dynamics.
Employees who feel devalued, dismissed, or ignored for the unique qualities they bring to the table are more likely to leave an organization,” Crosby said. “By cultivating an environment that creates a sense of belonging, leaders can build a culture that both attracts and retains talent.”
