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. Ads by Google International Business MA M.A. in 4 concentrations: Creative Industry, Healthcare Business etc. Workplace Diversity Access full-text academic books and journals. Online research - Questia Diversity in the workforce means employing people without discrimination on the basis of gender, age and ethnic or racial background. Since globalization is the current overwhelming trend in business, diversity in the workplace is a better accepted and applied concept now more than ever. 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. Also, a company that supports diversity of workforce is better able to address employee satisfaction and retention issues. An important part of diversity in the workplace is how a company uses its diversities. This is called inclusion. ]
