CONSULTING SERVICES

grit & flow is a unique consultancy created to increase workplace inclusion practices through an organization.

We began our practices focusing on the inclusivity of underemployed and under-utilized groups but quickly saw the need to apply our practice to the entire organization.

Our practice is research-based and we address all clients and projects with the highest level of integrity and honesty while still providing tactful conversations about difficult topics.

We specialize in an area of psychology focusing on applying and extending the study and interpretation of human behavior within organizations.

We are able to analyze job descriptions and job tasks to create an inclusive hiring process that extends to onboarding, training, and supporting employees to maximize their potential and thrive.

We look at the organization from a cultural perspective to determine how to address barriers to inclusion and provide a plan with interventions to guide the organization to true inclusivity.

We help you source talent differently. We look to your local community and find unique, under-utilized groups that will bring skills, loyalty, and a great attitude to your team.

All of us want our employees to not only do a wonderful job, but to also enjoy their work environment.

Many companies today have eagerly embraced the advancement in technology and invested thousands of dollars in streamlining their services, processes, and products. However, there is still one common issue that afflicts companies, and that is high turnover rate.

Organizations need to find reliable talent that will invest themselves into the values and mission of the organization. Unfortunately, employee turnover is expensive resulting in lost productivity and the loss in the invaluable investment your organization has placed in each team member.

True Inclusivity will advance your business. 

Understanding why you are experiencing turnover or lacking access to the skills your organization needs to be examined through multiple lenses.

Your Talent Sourcing

Your inclusion of employees within your organization.

Inclusivity will foster diversity
allowing your employees to thrive.

What can I do?

Embrace the diversity of the disability and neurodiversity community. Embrace the vets in your community. Enhance your corporate social responsibility by embracing these populations actively. It’s the right thing to do. 

The current situation: 

Employees stop showing up for work. Candidates don't show up for the interview. The organizations in your community are struggling for cost-effective labor combined with the necessary skills to operate and grow. How can you attract talent to YOUR organization? How can you get great talent in the door that is loyal and wants to excel? That's where we come in.

Employers continue to believe that they're in control of employment relations, but with the current economic condition, employees are squarely in control...Employees are sellers in a sellers market.

Danny Nelms, president of The Work Institute.

An estimated 41 million people voluntarily quit their jobs last year, up 8 percent from 2017, according to the Work Institute, a Franklin, Tenn.-based consulting firm. By 2020, that number will jump to 47 million, or roughly 1 in 3 workers, the firm predicts (SHRM, Agovino, 2019). The current stimulus within the economy is challenging organizations to find entry-level labor. Many industries are challenged with this, because people do not want to work.

So how do we fix it?

A common thread:

New employees often do not feel inclusion or a sense of belonging.

Why is feeling included/belonging important?

  • Greater employee engagement with the work they do

  • Increases creativity

  • Encourages ideas

  • Allows for innovation

  • Increase in productivity

  • Grows motivation

  • Retention surges

Turnover rate has many additional (domino/ripple) effects on the rest of your team.

  • Lower Job satisfaction

  • Feeling excluded

  • Feeling undervalued

  • Lowers Advancement opportunities

  • Absenteeism

  • Conflict with coworkers and supervisors

  • Increased stress and anxiety

  • Increased work expectations

  • Decrease in productivity

  • Decrease in quality of work

  • Increase in activity on LinkedIn

Loyalty increases when an individual is embraced for their true self.

All of us want our employees to not only do a wonderful job, but to enjoy their work environment. We are able to analyze the level and quality of work an employee is doing, but how do we identify their satisfaction with their employment?
