Here’s what we discussed:

As an HR leader in financial services, your job has never been harder. Attracting and retaining diverse talent, promoting a culture of equity and inclusion, and improving employee health well-being: What once were big challenges may now feel more like mission impossible. In a transformed world, you need new ways to support parents and underrepresented racial groups.

For many organizations, new approaches to family benefits are the key to supporting vulnerable populations and building a healthy, diverse workforce.

Our participants joined us for a discussion about the role family benefits can play in helping your organization address complex workforce challenges and thrive in times of unprecedented uncertainty and change.

Here is what we learned:

Mary Mbiya, Diversity & Inclusion Director, Flagstar Bank

• Mary is interested in this session because she wants to know how she can be more efficient, and that Flagstar Bank is making a process with its 5 pillars in an effective way.
• Flagstone Bank has an employee resource group that is mostly made up of women but led by a man. Women managers tend to be the most effective because they are most used to taking care of others.
• People in your organization need the ability to be great parents and still be great employees. When you look at the whole person, they discovered they needed to create an employee assistance band for families to be able to help their children financially.
• Flagstar Bank offers the same benefits across the board to all employees, whether they work in the office or the field.
• Managers have to play a role in communicating changes in benefits.
• When they do a gap analysis report and the identify opportunities that exist, they try to prioritize what other DE&I benefits they can offer.
• DE&I is all about deliberateness but who are you overhearing and under-hearing? In a virtual environment, it’s now a level playing field. They were able to quickly navigate the virtual space quickly.
