In this episode, Dr. Meisha-ann Martin, Senior Director of People Analytics and Research at Workhuman, and host Jackie Ferguson, both graduates from the University of South Florida, explore the negative impact of microaggressions on employee engagement, productivity, and innovation. Microaggressions result from unconscious biases and can create a toxic work environment for underrepresented groups. Dr. Martin discusses how creating an inclusive and equitable work environment is critical to ensuring employee happiness, boosting productivity, and increasing profitability.

As a leading provider of employee recognition software, Workhuman helps organizations measure the impact of their recognition programs and connect recognition efforts to other strategic HR imperatives and businesses’ bottom lines. In addition, Dr. Martin provides valuable insights into how recognition programs foster a culture of inclusivity and equity, highlighting the importance of taking a proactive approach to understanding and addressing microaggressions in the workplace. By listening to this episode, leaders and managers can gain valuable strategies and insights to create a more positive, productive, and inclusive work environment for all employees, including those from historically marginalized communities.
