The Importance of Diversity in the Workplace

KNOW | TWELVE, OCTOBER 2019 

Diversity in the Workplace

Here’s a quick read about Aflac’s success of celebrating women in the workplace and the benefits of diversity amongst any organization. Here are the highlights:

Great businesses thrive on diverse workforces, as women founders and senior executives know firsthand. Diversity starts with hiring practices, but extends to creating a culture of inclusion in which diverse backgrounds and viewpoints are embraced.Diversity also requires addressing the unique, practical issues of women at every level in the workplace. A key piece is offering benefits packages that meet women's needs, freeing them from worry so they can focus their full attention on work.


Hiring for Diversity
Among the advantages of a diverse workforce are better business performance, increased customer satisfaction and improved employee satisfaction.


Commitment at the Top
Commitment to diversity must start at the highest levels, with leaders setting the tone and showing the way.


Policies that Support Inclusion
An inclusive environment doesn't guarantee success, but it does provide the environment for talented people to flourish and prove themselves.


Benefits to Meet Diverse Needs
Benefits packages are a powerful way for your company's commitment to diversity to touch employees every day. And today's workers are not just looking for health insurance, dental and vision coverage. Supplemental benefits are just as critical when it comes to financial security, quality of life and peace of mind. - INC

4 Simple Inbox Tips To Gain An Hour (or more) Of Your Day Back!

LEARN | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2018 

Inbox dread. We’ve all experienced it. After a weekend away, or even a lunch break, and you dread seeing your inbox filled again. Researchers at Carleton University recently reported business professionals now spend one third of their time at the office, and HALF of the time they work at home in their inbox. 30% of the time the emails were not important or urgent. That’s 11.7 hours spent at work and 5.3 hours at home — every week. I don’t know about you but I would gladly spend those 17 hours NOT in my inbox. Not only is it a drain on time it’s a drain on energy.

Protect Less

LEARN | TWELVE, AUGUST 2018

It’s not a surprise to anyone how quickly the world moves these days. Technology changes daily, or perhaps even more often than that. We have instant access to information, status updates, shopping, news, television, even food!

Everywhere I turn, the perceived message is that faster is better. And who doesn’t want more time? If something can be achieved quicker, that would technically mean more time for......what exactly? More information, status updates, shopping, news, TV? Yikes!

Living the Flexwork Dream … at Delegate!

LOVE | TWELVE, JULY 2018

When we think about working remotely, and what it means to our work/life balance, a number of thoughts come to mind.  It’s awesome to have flexibility in our career, create our own schedule and have freedom and autonomy to make it our own day.  For morning people, we get up early and are hard at work before the sun comes up and for those of us who are night owls, we quiet the chaos of the day and settle in to work during the peaceful moments when everyone else is asleep.   Juggling kids, chores and commitments of daily life, all while making money, is an art form; one that we at Delegate thrive on and LOVE.

Facebook Updates Ads Reporting

KNOW | TWELVE, JUne 2018

 

Google’s File on Me Was Huge. Here’s Why It Wasn’t as Creepy as My Facebook Data.

Though Google has far more data about us than Facebook, because we use it for not only our internet searches but also for our emails, calendaring, maps, photo uploads, video streaming, mobile phones and web browsers, Google has sidestepped controversy while Facebook has under fire for improperly leaking user data. To find out why, I downloaded a copy of all of the information that Google has on me and compared that data to what I already knew Facebook had obtained on me. What I found was that while my Google data archive was much larger than my Facebook file it was also packed with fewer unpleasant surprises and I was relieved to find out I could delete the data. In contrast, when I downloaded my Facebook data, I found that a lot of what I saw could not be purged.
