2018 Inclusion Survey Benchmark

"The Inclusion Benchmark is the first of it's kind to measure Inclusion on a global scale"


Having a diverse and inclusive culture is critical for culture-first companies, but it's quite difficult to measure our complex social identities and how they play out in the workforce. The Inclusion benchmark includes feedback from tens of thousands of employees across nearly 100 different organizations. 

Pro-tip for analyzing Inclusion Survey results:

Pay attention to how you score relative to the benchmark; this is the first indication of how your culture fosters inclusion. Next, make sure that different demographic groups are scoring roughly the same. The purpose of the Inclusion Survey is to ensure that people from diverse backgrounds all experience your company culture equally. The heatmaps are the easiest way to compare your scores by, say, gender identity. The custom tab allows you to see the experience of intersectional groups (e.g. build a custom data line for "Women of Color" using the appropriate gender and race/ethnicity demographics).
