Homework: Diversity and Inclusion
Length: 5 to 7 pages.
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:
o 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)
o 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).
Format your homework according to the following formatting requirements:
o The answer should be typed, using Times New Roman font (size 12), double spaced, with one-inch margins on all sides.
o The response also includes a cover page containing the title of the homework, the student's name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
o Also include a reference page. The Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.
