WI 4.0: WORKPLACE INCLUSION 4.0

SUMMARY

Workplace Inclusion means to built up a workplace culture that builds respect, fosters inclusiveness, promotes diversity and embraces the unique skills and qualities of all our employees.

Workplace Inclusion encompasses many positive aspects of life. It is about acknowledging the diverse skills and perspectives that people may bring to the workplace because of their gender, age, language, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, working style, educational level, professional skills, work and life experiences, socio-economic background, job function, geographical location, marital status and family responsibilities.

Workplace Inclusion is about removing barriers to ensure all employees enjoy full participation in a workplace which supports the development and achievement of well informed and culturally appropriate business outcomes. It also involves recognizing the value of individual differences and managing them in the workplace.

Furthermore the project targets the priority “ADULT EDUCATION: Extending and developing educators’ competences” and the priority “VET: Developing VET business partnerships aimed at promoting work-based learning in all its forms”.
