Winning With Underdogs

Video description

In today's workplace, too many marginalized groups are underrepresented. And yet, workplaces often struggle to find enough employees to sustain their growing needs, putting massive pressure on HR hiring teams to fill the demand. Organizational psychologist Gil Winch argues that addressing our own biases and building organizations where everyone feels a profound sense of belonging is not only great for a company's bottom line, it's also good for employees, communities, and society as a whole. But where does a leader start?

In Winning with Underdogs, Winch reveals: the current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion in business and the huge financial, social, and personal benefits that happen when full inclusion is a workplace norm; who comprises the pool of excellent potential candidates and where to find them; how to screen, onboard, train, and manage candidates correctly for positions that match their skills; how to care for employees' needs in a way that empowers them to be highly productive and engaged in their work; and how to create a warm, welcoming corporate culture that prioritizes employees' emotional health.

Winning with Underdogs is the highly practical step-by-step guide you need to help build a more just society, while benefitting your business-and everyone in it.
