The Fair & Progressive Employment Index (FPEIndex) measures the extent to which organisations believe in the value of leveraging individual differences to reap important benefits for both the business and the employee. This includes recruiting employees fairly based on merit and job fit, offering them equal opportunities for growth and development, and creating a supportive work environment where they are engaged and appreciated.
Have you consistently leveraged on these elements to create an inclusive workplace?
The Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment Practices, sets out fair employment practices for adoption by employers. This will not only help prevent discrimination at the workplace, but also encourage employers to adopt progressive HR practices that will benefit both employers and employees.
Employers are expected to abide by the principles of fair employment and adopt the recommended good practices.
Leaders are at the forefront of any organisational culture change effort. What leaders say and do send powerful signals throughout the organisation about what is valued and expected. Through focused leadership efforts such as prioritising diversity and inclusion, allocating resources to such efforts, regularly measuring and reviewing these efforts, and modelling the expected values, leaders can shape the right attitudes and behaviours for a fair and progressive organisation.
Leadership by itself is not enough to create a strong culture; an aligned framework of processes, structures and systems are needed to support and reinforce the desired culture. Human resource functions such as manpower planning, recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation, performance appraisal, and employee relations need to be designed to ensure fairness and meritocracy.
In addition to leadership and infrastructure, one more element is needed to bring an organisation’s culture to life – communication. They serve as reminders of what the organisation represents or aspires to become. Published or orally handed down stories and statements clarify values where policies and procedures leave off. Communication activities foster a sense of inclusion and trust, while visual elements remind us of the identity and values the organisation believes in.
