Diversity is a popular buzzword in the workplace. Most companies agree that just as in the investment world, diversification is an overall good thing. Businesses need new ideas and perspectives to create progress.
Yet, how should one go about implementing diversity initiatives? It is one thing to approve of an idea in theory, but actually making things work on a day-to-day basis can be difficult. This video helps explain some of the problems institutions may face trying to ensure a truly diverse workplace. With employees from various backgrounds there are sure to be misunderstandings at times. Can everyone get along? If not, what should the company do?
Viewers also learn that real diversity is not just about race, class, religion and gender. Workplace supervisors have to think about different ages, mental abilities and physical impairments, for example. All of these factors need consideration at any company that wants to take proper advantage of all the talents that its employees have to offer.
This film teaches the ways to handle the somewhat touchy subject of diversity with sensitivity. Viewers see dramatizations of common workplace occurrences to learn how to appropriately deal with coworkers with whom there is little in common.
