Workplace tools to reduce the wealth-based attainment gap
Helping workers from poorer backgrounds fulfil their potential
The reasons why individuals from poorer backgrounds do not attain similar levels of success as those from wealthier ones are not well understood. This study uses targeted interventions with individuals from poorer backgrounds in selected organisations in India to boost their sense of ‘agency’, thus leading to increased performance. The research is a step towards designing organisational interventions and culture that can help reduce the attainment gap and create a more equitable society.
