Research has consistently shown that when employees feel that they belong, they will perform better and experience higher levels of commitment, engagement, and well-being. An absence of belonging increases risk of isolation, underperformance and burnout.

In this session, award-winning speaker Rumeet Billan will examine what it means to belong at work, the harmful effects of exclusion, and the challenges that leaders face in creating a sense of belonging.

She will provide you with practical and evidence-based tools and strategies that support building, fostering, and nurturing a culture of belonging.
