HR Works Presents A Seat at the Table: Implementing a Preferred Name at Work

This episode of A Seat at the Table is not only featured as part of HRDA’s HR Diversity week but it also celebrates Pride Month, which recognizes the impact that LGBTQ+ individuals have had on the world.

This is the perfect time for HR leaders and organizations to assess their company’s DEI efforts. One of those important efforts is implementing and using pronouns at work.

According to a recent report by the Pew Research Center, about 1.6 percent of adults are openly transgender or nonbinary, and about 5 percent of people younger than 30 are transgender or nonbinary –  that is, their gender differs from the sex they were assigned at birth.

Listen in as we discuss tips for employees and employers who are implementing a preferred name at work.
