- 70% of Magellan customers believe a DEI solution aligns with wellbeing and mental health services.
“Our customers are telling us they want to create more inclusive environments within their organizations,” said Bryan Simms, DEI product consultant and director of proposals, Magellan Healthcare. “In response, we developed iMclusion because we believe an inclusive workforce ensures an environment where employees of all backgrounds feel valued for who they are and what they bring to the organization.”
iMclusion uses a sustainable model that features a readiness assessment, eLearning modules, facilitator-led discussions and DEI council establishment and support. Success is measured by improvement in organizational commitment to DEI, increased perception of inclusion by managers and employees, use of learning resources and employee satisfaction.
"To make transformative culture change, a strategic, action-oriented and organizational approach that engages everybody is ideal,” said Namita Eveloy, senior principal consultant, deepSEE Consulting. “At deepSEE Consulting, we match motivation with a proven model that empowers individuals to build DEI competence within the workplace."
