NXP is expanding the company’s DE&I programs and initiatives to meet the needs
of today’s multicultural workforce and to establish NXP as the technology
company where the most talented team members across the globe choose to work.
As NXP looks to foster a more inclusive culture within the company on a global
scale, inclusion must be a meaningful part of our day-to-day activities. To
help in these efforts, NXP launched Inclusion Insights to embed inclusive
practices throughout our company at every level. An Inclusion Insight is a
one-to-five-minute exchange about a specific inclusion topic at the beginning
of a meeting. They are intended to serve as regular reminders to each of us
about the importance of being inclusive at work, at home and in every aspect
of our lives.
The concept is akin to safety moments, common within industries where worker
safety is paramount. From power plants to paper mills, many companies are
accustomed to starting all meetings with a safety moment or safety talk. It
could be something as quick and simple as communicating the emergency exits or
a more complex discussion to share the root cause, corrective and preventive
actions for a major safety event.
Safety moments – along with other safety-focused actions like site-level
safety metrics and safety walks – serve as intentional, daily reminders about
the importance of safety. And creating a heightened sense of awareness changes
behavior. So, we took this concept and applied it to inclusion. Whether
opening a formal meeting with an Inclusion Insight, highlighting inclusive
behaviors or discussing a specific topic like unconscious bias, we’re focused
on intentionally creating more awareness and demonstrating the behaviors we
want to see within the company, which ties to the foundation of NXP’s core
values – trust and respect.
With Inclusion Comes Collaboration
Better engagement, increased collaboration, high performance and innovation
are just a few benefits of inclusion. When our team members feel they are
working in an inclusive climate, they are much more likely to come forward
with new and different ideas, challenge thought processes and highlight
potential risks to projects, schedules and more—without fear. Inclusion
creates an environment in which all team members feel valued, which enables
everyone to perform at their best.
We’ve created an Inclusion Insights library to help our team members prepare
for formal meetings like quarterly town halls. The library includes a
collection of one-page insights covering topics like microaggressions,
psychological safety and flexible work acceptance and accommodations. Each
insight provides a brief explanation of a specific topic and its impact, and
helpful tips and examples.
When team members are assured of their value and feel included, accepted and
respected, we increase engagement, innovation and profitability.
