Onward Inclusion Advantage
Dynamic Works and PRIDE Industries have come together to create the ONWARD Inclusion Advantage, a unique, four-tiered inclusive workforce educational program designed to instruct individuals, departmental managers, and organizational leaders on how to create an inclusive company culture for all people.
Our partnership combines PRIDE’s 55 years of inclusive workforce development and consulting expertise with Dynamic Work’s 40+ year history in training and, more recently, virtual career services to transform workplace experiences.
Individual, team, and organizational workplace inclusion certification
Times have changed. Today, winning organizations build brand value and high-performance teams by reflecting the diversity of their entire community. This includes an inclusive workforce that comprises a broad representation of all people.
Typically, under- or unemployed, people with employment obstacles/challenges represent the nation’s largest untapped talent pool. With training and support, these employees become part of motivated teams offering high retention rates, low absenteeism, and their unique skills and perspectives.
