What Is Diversity?
It is very important to increase diversity in the workplace by improving your practices of recruiting, hiring and promoting. Diversity is as much about diverse talent as it is about diversity and equality. It has many different forms and layers including differences in age, ethnic background, gender and race. Diversity dimensions also include geographic location, income, parental status, marital status, and religious beliefs. All HR professionals have to make sure they know what barriers are in place to improve diversity and how they can respond to the challenge. It isn’t difficult or hard to create a more diverse workplace, so long as the right HR practices are in place.
