Managing Ethnic Diversity in Workplace
Introduction
Globalization has been increasing day by day, more people are travelling outside of their home
countries in order to join foreign companies for better future. Whereas for non-profit
organizations it essential to work with people with different background, age, religion and
gender (Barron, Hebl, & King, 2011). One of the main issues in front of multinational companies
is to maximize their workforce and create a situation in which every person is comfortable
working with other and is giving his max output.
Workplace diversity is any kind of diversity referring to gender, age, linguistic, cultural
background and many others in an organization(Giacalone& Rosenfeld, 1991. Diversity also
refers to other differences between employees pertaining to educational background, economic
status, geographical differences etc (Bono & Judge, 2003).
One may disagree that race and ethnicity impact the work environment setting more than some
other setting. The work environment gives exceptional chances to express one's personality and
to work intuitively with others in different focused and helpful circumstances(Bell&Nkomo,
2001).
Generally people spend more time in their work place and give less time to other activities. The
working environment additionally gives chances to the representation of stereotyping, preference
and separation (Roberts, 2005). Individuals don't just leave their racial and ethnic personalities at
home, and the working environment is not safe from societal types of racial and ethnic nature
(Kanter, 1977).
Understated, degraded racial minorities are consistently subjected to negative speculations,
expanded assessment, social separation, and harsher appraisals in the workplace. Whereas this
can increase in racial minorities' affectability toward others' impression of them among
interracial connections(Ely & Thomas,2001)
Diversity
Diversity is generally known as accepting, valuing and acknowledging difference among humans
with respect to their age, gender, race and mental ability (Burma, 1946). Diversity issues are
known to be the most important issues these days as increase difference in the UK population.
Companies need to look for a way to overcome these issues and provide equal rights to the
people, diversity has a high potential for productivity and competitive advantage (Cialdini,
2001). Diversity will require the companies to review their management practice and develop
new and creative practices which will increase the overall performance of the company (Holvino,
2010).
