Why we need diversity management

Understanding your colleagues can go a long way to manage diversity within the work environment. To achieve this goal we need to look at the common misconceptions regarding diversity:

1. Diversity is strictly a social or moral issue;
2. Diversity is simply a business issue.

Social interactions and moral values have less to do with a person’s acceptance and ability to work effectively with other individuals, than upbringing, background and lack of knowledge and understanding towards different cultures, religions and ethnic groups. Diversity encompasses both social and financial issues.

If managed correctly, diversity can be a powerful tool in aiding an organization to achieve success.

Diversity enables an organization to:
Recruit the best talent
Function better as a team
Achieve external success in the form of enhanced productivity and increased revenue.
Experience enhanced internal relationships among employees
Improve employee commitment and morale
Improve relationships with clients, vendors and the public
