The 2022 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Survey and Companion webinar underscore the impacts of DEI on staffing, bottom-line performance of the rental housing industry.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) affects the retention and recruitment of employees and bottom-line performance in the rental housing industry. These issues have taken on even greater significance as employee turnover continues to increase and finding new employees remains challenging.
To improve understanding of employee and executive perceptions regarding DEI, the National Apartment Association (NAA) and Swift Bunny conducted two complimentary, anonymous and voluntary national surveys to better understand the experience of employees in the rental housing industry, identify areas of opportunity to improve DEI and provide data to inform NAA as it continues to provide resources that members can use to implement positive actions.
In the companion webinar, Jen Piccotti, Chief Learning Officer with Swift Bunny, shares highlights of the DEI survey that can support valuable conversations and action steps to improve employees’ experience of diversity, equity, and inclusion in both individual organizations and the rental housing industry overall. Piccotti shares the areas of relative strength in this industry that stakeholders can continue to build on, the topics that have the greatest difference in perception between rental housing employees and executives, as well as key insights into the spectrum of experiences perceived by different demographic categories.
