3 Ways To Ensure Everybody Is Equal on Your Team

Research and stats suggest that things aren’t all that equal between men and women in the workplace. While we have come a long way in the last few decades, we still have a way to go. If you have a business, one of the best things you can do is ensure everybody on your team is equal. Below, you’ll find 3 ways to ensure everybody on your team is treated equally:

 

Pay Men And Women The Same

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean you should pay them the same if they are doing different jobs. However, for a man and a woman doing the same job, you should provide equal pay and opportunities. Many bosses don’t realize they are biased, and may end up opening more doors for male employees than female employees.

 

Make Sure Everybody Can Share Their Ideas In A Safe Space

It’s already much easier for male employees to have their ideas heard in the workplace, and for women to be silenced or made to feel like their ideas don’t matter. In fact, the stories of men stealing ideas from women without even realizing they have done it is ridiculous! Make sure nobody is being talked over in meetings and that everybody can have their voice heard.

 

Pay Attention

If an employee comes to you because they don’t believe they have been treated fairly, listen. Do something about it. Inclusion is so important in this day and age. The infographic below can show you how analytics can increase inclusion.
