In today’s workplace, a respect for diversity is a must. Although the benefits associated with workplace diversity are becoming more widely known, many organizations still do not have diversity-training programs in place.
According to recent reports, more minorities are entering the U. According to the New York Times, in the year 2003 only 21 percent of individuals surveyed indicated that they had ever participated in a workplace diversity program.
Moreover, work diversity considers the basic principles of Equal Employment Opportunities.
This principle maintains that employees are entitled to the same treatment in an organization despite their personal or physical qualities.
Diversity includes the growing number of women in the workforce, people of different religions, people with diverse education background, Aging workers, and people from different ethnic groups as well as handicapped individuals.
Companies and organizations must use and understand the human potential of workers of diverse qualities.
There are laws and regulation set up by the service for organizations to follow in their process of recruitment and promotions (Bassett-Jones 169-175).
Despite all the efforts and set backs of these policies, the aim of the service is to go beyond promoting equality in the workforce and rectifying past mistakes.
