Option #1: Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are two common debates both in the workplace and throughout our political spectrum. The simple fact is that citizens travel much more freely now than 50 or 75 years ago: Germany is less “German”, and France is less “France” than at any time in history. Employees in one country are much more likely to meet, interact, and work with employees in other countries, and that can be a challenge. With that understanding, write a paper that addresses the following:
- Provide a brief overview of how the demographics of the world, and US, workforce has changed (percent of women in the workplace and average age, for example)
- Discuss how managing a homogeneous workforce differs from managing a heterogeneous workforce, both nationally and globally.
Finally, present at least three strategies that a human resource professional should adopt in order to effectively manage employees who have different backgrounds, perceptions, beliefs, religions, and philosophies (both work and personal).
Your paper should be:
- 5-7 pages in length, or about 2300 words
