Business Management - Human resource management: workplace diversity

Workplace diversity

Management must also take into account the changes that are occurring in
terms of the workforce - its composition and the participation rate of
employees. The diversity of the workforce must also be utilised for the
benefit of the organisation. Organisations need to implement policies that
are 'family-friendly' and take into account the changing role and needs of
women, in particular, in the workplace. The provision of childcare
facilities is a prime example of a change occurring from a change in
attitude in this area. Organisations also need to ensure that they tap into
the many skills and talents that their employees possess and utilise this
diversity of talent for the benefit of the individual employee and the
organisation. Organisations need to ensure that they have in place equal
employment opportunities for all employees and that there are no acts of
unlawful discrimination [1] committed by the management of the
organisation.

The influence of the international market place and the globalisation [2]
of markets also affects organisations and the way they operate. Changes in
the attitudes of consumers arising from this globalisation of business must
be taken into account by management if they are to maintain their market
share, [3] both domestically and internationally.

Management should attempt to achieve the benefits of organisational
efficiencies and effectiveness [4] by taking these changes in attitude into
account when they are developing and implementing their organisational
practices and policies.
