Multinational Consumer Products Company
The Issue: Difficultly developing, advancing and retaining Multicultural women in sales.
The Solution: Focusing on new hires and entry-level workers and their immediate supervisors, we crafted an intervention that reduced attrition while leveraging our relationship-enhancement processes. With the support of human resources staff and senior leaders, we raised the diversity competency of both supervisors and Multicultural women.
The Results: Between Year One and Year Five, the company’s turnover rate for women in sales decreased nearly 83%, the number of those at high risk to leave the company decreased 92% and the number of those at low risk to leave increased 172%.
Assessments & Metrics
Successful organizational change requires an understanding of a company’s current state and the ability to identify opportunities for improvement. Our gold-standard assessment and diagnostic tools allow us to determine where an organization is currently thriving and uncover barriers preventing the company from achieving its goals. Our diagnostic process includes focus groups and interviews to determine the systemic root causes of a company’s challenges and identify the business areas and cohorts that should be involved to achieve meaningful change.

As subject-matter experts, we work with our collaborative partner, Diversity and Inclusion Television (DITV), to produce a range of media programming to support our consulting and training services. We are the executive producers of the “Workin’ It Out Podcast,” a weekly video and audio show that examines diversity, equity and inclusion issues in the workplace and in society and offers actionable steps for change. We also develop webcasts and videos to enhance our clients’ DE&I efforts. In addition, our CEO and consultants are DE&I thought leaders who are available to deliver in-house or conference keynote presentations.
