ERIKS Digital focus on Inclusion
ERIKS Digital has a team of 100 with 23 different nationalities and 29% of senior positions filled by women. With an established diverse workforce, the team is focusing on creating a more inclusive environment. This means giving every employee the opportunity to develop and progress, cultivating a culture of respect and engagement, where the thoughts, ideas and voices of every single employee are valued.
The team has been looking at ways to create a more inclusive culture across all aspects of their approach, from leadership style to office set-up. One of the first steps has been raising awareness of unconscious biases. Training sessions have helped employees identify and understand their own biases. It can be quite confronting when people realise that they have a bias, but as they become aware, it helps to develop a deeper understanding of the issues involved. As we become aware of our biases, we can progress beyond them and work towards a more inclusive culture.
