At this moment, as the Great Resignation converges with ongoing pandemic concerns, it’s vital to understand what workers need now. This is why RallyBright recently conducted our Inclusive Collaboration at Work study, a survey of 1,000 US-based working professionals, aimed at discovering current views about work and workplace climate.
Our top takeaway from the study is that job satisfaction and turnover intent are closely tied to an organization’s capacity for inclusion and collaboration.
Our study identified and examined six key variables of organizational collaboration and inclusion: alignment, cooperation, compassion, fairness, psychological safety, and belonging. Improving these six variables leads to increased job satisfaction and decreased turnover intent. Furthermore, “belonging” was determined to be the strongest predictor of job satisfaction and turnover intent.
What does this mean? Importantly, it suggests that as workers rethink their relationships with work, organizations must adapt and determine the best – and newer ways – to support them.
Here at RallyBright we’re poised to help with today's launch of our Inclusive Collaboration Toolkit. This new addition to the RallyBright team development platform empowers organizations, managers and teams to increase job satisfaction, reduce turnover intent and improve capacity for inclusion and collaboration.
Part of the reason we developed the toolkit is that we’ve seen firsthand how organizations and their teams are being challenged by an increasingly complex work environment: ongoing pandemic concerns, the Great Resignation, high levels of burnout and stress, and a heightened focus on DEI. Our toolkit is designed to help organizations navigate these challenges by measuring their progress and guiding them toward improvements that will impact job satisfaction and turnover intent as they cultivate inclusion and collaboration.
The RallyBright Inclusive Collaboration Toolkit enables organizations to measure, diagnose and improve inclusive collaboration. It includes individual and team assessments and reports, benchmark data, strengths and vulnerabilities, and actionable roadmaps. These elements provide leaders and teams with measurable and practical feedback for improving inclusion and collaboration, which our research has shown leads to increased job satisfaction and decreased turnover intent.
By making progress across the key attributes of collaboration and inclusion, organizations will be better positioned to confront the current market forces impacting their return-to-work strategies. They will also be better positioned to support the distributed teams and hybrid workplaces that have become fundamental to the future of work.

About the Inclusive Collaboration at Work Study
RallyBright’s Inclusive Collaboration at Work Study offers insights about the current shift in how individuals think about work, the return to office as the pandemic recedes, and the correlation between job satisfaction, turnover intent, and an organization’s climate for inclusion and collaboration. The study was conducted online in June 2021 with a diverse sample of 1,000 US-based working professionals, and examined six distinct variables of organizational collaboration and inclusion: alignment, cooperation, compassion, fairness, psychological safety and belonging.
