Last month we learned the importance of belonging in the workplace. In February, we focus on celebrating the State's diverse workforce. Our team members come from all walks of life, and as learned from the sense of belonging content, we must celebrate our diversity. Forbes reported that organizations with diverse teams are more creative, have increased opportunities for growth, and are better at decision-making.

Increased innovation and creativity are two of the main advantages of workplace diversity. When tackling problems, a diverse team can produce fresh ideas since they have a variety of viewpoints and experiences. Think of a time when someone from your office contributed to solving a problem because of a prior experience they had. By investing in and celebrating our diverse workforce we can ensure these instances become more and more common.

The 2023 Learning Framework’s theme is “Fostering a Sense of Belonging through Learning.” You will find curated content each month focused on a designated outcome with ties to belonging. Each month will feature a new topic related to Quarterly Pulse Survey outcomes and features content from The Missouri Way Training Series, MO Learning, and many external resources. The Learning Framework was created to save time researching development opportunities on your own and provide common learning opportunities for all team members. Now, you have more time to focus on your day-to-day work. Use this monthly guide to help you reach your professional goals throughout the year!

Don’t forget – we offer monthly live training opportunities as part of the Learning Framework. Reserve your spot today by registering here.
