Linked – Tell Employees What It Takes to Get a Promotion

This headline seems obvious. If you have an employee who has set a goal of being promoted to the next level of your organization, you should be able to tell them what is required.

Companies that only hire consultants who will travel to them in peron are not as inclusive as they could be.

Certain jobs require some of these things, but many jobs where the organization requires it can just as easily be done without those requirements. When they do that, they’re not matching what they say about DE&I. They are clearly emphasizing their preferences over their commitment.
