INFOGRAPHIC: What’s belonging got to do with it?

You may have heard more about belonging at work in the past year than every before. It was one of the top topics for the Deloitte 2020 Global Human Capital Trends survey, with 79% of organizations considering it important for their success. But what is belonging and how can you cultivate it?

The Achievers Workforce Institute (AWI) defines belonging as an experience of connection, security, and community — it’s about feeling at home in one’s place, without reservation.

A strong sense of belonging correlates positively with engagement, resilience, productivity, and more. Helping employees develop a strong sense of belonging is critical for business success. So where can you start?

Based on the 2021 Culture Report on Belonging at Work, this infographic offers the first steps in how to develop that sense of belonging in your organization.
