Inclusive company culture attracts better and more diverse talent and, when people feel like they belong, they're more likely to stick around for the long term. There is no cookie-cutter solution for building inclusive company culture, but having a clear understanding of company culture's elements and tactics is necessary to achieve a great work environment. We'll explore practical ways to influence company culture, including behavioral norms, communication skills, and handling conflict.
