Employers are under more pressure than ever to create inclusive, equitable, and diverse workplaces – and for good reason.
But as business, diversity and HR leaders endeavor to drive forward meaningful programs, they must remember that IE&D is also a legal compliance issue. From improper data collection and quotas to discrimination and differing jurisdictions, IE&D programs present significant risks alongside vital opportunities.
That’s where Littler’s IE&D Playbook comes in, a free resource providing employers with an interactive, comprehensive collection of resources – including videos, FAQs, podcasts, and high-level summaries – that can help them answer fundamental IE&D compliance questions, assess their current efforts, uncover gaps and challenges, and identify IE&D programming opportunities.
Here’s how the Playbook can help your organization:
- Cut through the confusion. Explore a broad range of IE&D hot topics through resources, analyses, and recommended practices to demystify this space and help conceptualize your unique IE&D plan. Organized into 12 key focus areas – including recruiting, retention, program development, global considerations, and assessing progress, among others – the Playbook offers an intuitive, easy-to-use knowledge base that meets your organization where it is on its IE&D journey.
- Enable a more efficient planning process. The Playbook is a free self-service tool that helps you find answers to central IE&D questions – so that when you do engage an attorney, you and your team will be better prepared to work with them.
- Gain access to Littler’s deep bench of attorneys. The Playbook can directly connect you to Littler attorneys with subject matter knowledge in areas of interest to your organization.
