Research: Where Employees Think Companies’ DEIB Efforts Are Failing
Two new surveys from Gallup, each conducted in the spring of 2022, reveal stark differences in how well employees and HR leaders say their organizations are doing when it comes to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.

To make progress, leaders must understand employees’ core DEIB needs — and where alignment is lacking. This article outlines 10 needs employees say are not being met, and offers strategies to help organizations address the disconnect.
