Inclusion Assessment Tools

Symmetra’s inclusion assessment tools are the first of their kind designed to answer the specific question “How can I be more inclusive?”

Built on our robust competency model and designed to generate the insights required for behaviour change, our assessments will assist in embedding an inclusive culture by:

  • Providing clarity about expected behaviours (what inclusive behaviour looks like)
  • Optimising performance of diverse teams by providing leaders and teams with insights about their strengths, gaps and blind spots
  • Enabling targeted and individualised learning journeys for leaders and teams
  • Holding people accountable for inclusive behaviours
  • Fairly measuring, recognising and rewarding people for their inclusive behaviours
  • Enabling leaders and teams to benchmark progress by re-testing
  • Better positioning leadership to deepen their relationships with internal and external stakeholders

Flexible Application
