Belonging at work boosts everything
The Achievers Workforce Institute (AWI) defines belonging as an experience of connection, security, and community – feeling at home in one’s place without reservation.
More than a buzzword, a strong sense of belonging nearly triples employee outcomes, including engagement, productivity, job commitment, and well-being.
