Sociosystemic Organizational Development
The Six-Month Organizational Development package is the perfect choice for organizations that are looking to gain a better understanding of the state of the diversity, equity, and inclusion within their workplace. There are four unique components that are part of the Six-Month process: (1) SCOLA Report, (2) Questionnaire, (3) Workshops, & (4) Final Report. See below for more information on each!
The document review portion is the first portion of the Sociosystemic Organizational Development process. This portion involves your organization providing us with any relevant documents you have that pertain or allude to the nature diversity, equity, and inclusion in your workplace. Some examples of these documents might be: Employee Handbook, Mission, Vision, & Values statements, Websites, Social media pages, Organizational Charts, and Employee Demographics. From here, our team of experts will review and analyze your materials over the next few months and provide you with a SCOLA Report - our own unique version of a SWOT Analysis. This report will provide you with a professional opinion and estimation of the ways in which your employees, existing clients/members, potential clients/members, and even competition might be receiving the information inferred by the language in your documents. The report will offer recommendations on how to make immediate and long term adjustments.
*Note* The SCOLA Report is not influenced by the Questionnaire in any way!
The Questionnaire component involves two distinct areas - employee/stakeholder interviews, and employee and stakeholder surveys; both of which are 100% anonymous!
The interview portion requires your organization to select up to 15 people (maximum) - employees or stakeholders - to be interviewed by our team. They will be asked a mix of quantitative and qualitative questions that revolve around the culture and experience of the workplace. All responses are privileged and the identity of the interviewee will, of course, be kept anonymous.
The survey portion allows those employees not selected for interviews to remain involved in the overall process. Unlike the interview questions, the anonymous surveys will not involve any qualitative questions but will involve the quantitative questions.
The results of, both, the interviews and the survey directly inform the Final Report (not the SCOLA Report) which will be provided to you at the end of the six months.
Inclusive Diversity Workshops
Core Five 101
Both Sociosystemic Organizational Development packages come complete with a series of Inclusive Diversity Training workshops. Our unique and original workshops have traveled the world, been offered on two continents, and have presented in front of more than 25 representatives from countries around the world. The Six-Month package includes three of our most requested Conference Style presentations:
Core Five 101
Microaggressions in the Workplace
Diversifying Your Hiring
A critical purpose for these presentations being a part of the SsOD package is to ensure that the individual growth and development work of DEI continues throughout the 6-month process. We are a systems-focused company who understands that systems are only as strong as the people within them.
After a period of six months, your organization will receive our Sociosystemic Organizational Development Final Report. This report will be the second report you receive from us (the first being the SCOLA Report) and will be the most robust. Inside the Final Report will be the anonymous results from the interview and survey, our SsOD Rubric and Scorecard detailing which type of organization you are (Homogenous, Diverse, Multicultural, Sociosystemic) and providing insight regarding how we determined your placement, and finally, a series of recommendations on how to move forward.
For efficiency and ideal effectiveness, organizations should view the Final Report and the SCOLA Report as one document when processing the recommendations provided for "Next Steps."
