When organizations lose their talent there's a cost. Some reports claim it's 1.5x the lost employee's salary to replace them. While others claim the cost is more dramatic especially when employees are from an underrepresented community. Bad experiences close talent pipelines from these tightknit groups. Costing your organization valuable productivity.

More importantly the loss of diverse employees costs you culture input and point of view necessary to move into our new global reality. A reality where talent is a premium and in short supply. Talented diverse employees are necessary to hire and more important to retain long term.

Let me help you develop your Agility profile to retain your diverse employees and create a culture where people want to belong.
