The company had a predominantly homogeneous workforce and was struggling to attract and retain employees from diverse backgrounds. Additionally, the company had received reports of discrimination and bias, which were impacting employee satisfaction and productivity. To address these issues, the company decided to implement a psychology-based communication program that focused on improving workplace diversity. The program included using inclusive language, cultural competency training, and diversity recruitment efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
The company partnered with Blue Monarch Group, a consulting firm that specializes in helping companies develop effective diversity and inclusion strategies.

The implementation of the psychology-based communication program was found to be effective in increasing employee satisfaction and reducing discrimination and bias. The program led to a significant increase in the number of employees from diverse backgrounds, which helped to create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace. The company’s employees reported feeling more engaged and productive as a result of the program.
