Whether you’re looking to improve company culture, strengthen your learning and development programs, develop a diversity and inclusion strategy, establish leadership training, or help your employees navigate change in the workplace, Bravely can help you support your most critical initiatives.
Despite the fact that U.S. companies spend upwards of $8 billion per year on diversity and inclusion, studies show that these programs and initiatives have failed to yield significant change within organizations. Studies show that employees from marginalized groups still choose not to speak up about the issues they’re facing at work for fear of retribution. With Bravely as part of your diversity and inclusion strategy, employees can connect with professional coaches for confidential conversations.
When organizations prioritize workplace learning and development, their employees thrive as a result. Yet many coaching and skill-building programs are reserved for executives and managers—neglecting the people who likely need it most. What’s more, most learning and development programs are classroom-based and happen just once, making it hard for people to retain what they’ve learned. Bravely can complement your existing training strategy, helping people develop strategies for catalyzing their performance, navigating their growth, and developing their talent.
Whether the result of M&A activity, shifts at the leadership level, or company-wide restructuring, organizational change can be incredibly difficult for individuals and teams. While HR teams exist to support employees during these uncertain times, the reality is that HR Business Partners are often stretched too thin and unable to support every employee that needs a little extra guidance. Additionally, depending on the situation, these changes can often result in employees feeling like they don’t trust their leadership or understand why they’ve made the decision they’ve made. Bravely can support your employees as they adapt to their new normal, helping them thrive in their roles and stay at their companies.
The best places to work are often the organizations that prioritize developing company culture. The problem? Healthy cultures are born out of open and honest conversations—and studies show that 70% of employees are avoiding conversations with their managers, colleagues, or direct reports. By connecting employees with professional coaches for confidential conversations, they’re given an outlet to speak openly and often about whatever’s on their mind. In turn, they’re given the tools they need to improve their situation, and are less likely to spread toxicity throughout the organization by venting to colleagues.
While companies spend billions of dollars annually on learning and organizational development, managers continue to lack the support and training they need to be effective leaders. As a result, their performance and relationships suffer. With Bravely, they can connect with professional coaches for confidential conversations that help them strengthen their communication and leadership skills. Furthermore, since our coaches exist outside the walls of their office, they can feel comfortable being vulnerable, open, and honest about the things that are holding them back from success.
