Abstract

The recent economic downturn has had a direct impact on diversity in the workplace. It is obvious that the issue is too complex for a simplistic effort to be capable of addressing all of the factors related to diversity in the workplace. A diverse workforce is a direct reflection of a rapidly changing society and economy. Respecting and promoting individual differences brings great benefit to organizations. A diverse workplace can benefit both the employee and the employer. It has been demonstrated that a diverse workplace will create a competitive edge and increased work productivity. Positive diversity management benefits employees by creating a fair and non-discriminatory environment where everyone has access to opportunities and challenges. Organizations with a diverse workforce must use effective management tools to educate employees and managers concerning the value of diversity. This will include fairness based upon laws, policies, and regulations. Keywords management practice, organizational practice, workplace discrimination, workplace diversity
