How does diversity of this workforce demographic benefit an organization?
Diversity in the workplace is an important issue in business. A diverse workforce actually offers a number of benefits to the company. The United States is considered a melting pot of people. [ The American society does not cater to a single group of people. Every year thousands of immigrants flock to the US in search of a better life. Mixing with people from different races, nationality and
religious background is unavoidable. Therefore, the issue of diversity in the workplace needs serious consideration. Diversity in the Workplace Defined Being a melting pot, each immigrant that enters the country contributes to the cultural, religious or ethnic diversity of America as they assimilate into the society. Diversity is particularly evident in the workplace. This is especially true with the current trend of globalization, where companies venture out abroad for expansion purposes.

Benefits of a Diverse Workforce It is believed that companies employing a diverse workforce would be in a better position to understand the demographics of the customers they serve much better making them better able to thrive in the marketplace than companies that hire only a limited group of employee demographics.
