inclusion by understanding cultural scripts
Our approach aims at influencing your corporate culture by better understanding senior leader’s cultural awareness through a thorough leadership assessment. Leaders set the tone of the corporate culture, hence, it is critical to be aware of how cultural scripts influence behavior.
Why is it so difficult to retain Latino talent?
U.S. companies spend an estimated $8 billion in diversity efforts. However, attrition for Latinos continues to be drastic. We believe it is due to the cultural conflict between the corporate culture and Latino employees’ cultural scripts. By aligning corporate culture more in line with Latino employees, it decreases the void and conflict that leads to job dissatisfaction. We focus on the root cause of the problem, not another D&I program.
Three phenomena are creating a critical need to target Latino employees. First, the demographic shift in the U.S. is astonishing. Latinos continue to make up a greater percentage of the population, college graduates, and new entries into the work place. Second, Latino employees leave companies at considerably higher rates than non-Latino whites. Third, even though Latinos make up 17% of the current population, only 2% of Latinos serve in senior leadership roles.
