Today’s competitive market includes international business. Actively recruiting different individuals into a workplace will not magically create a unified work environment simply because they share a common purpose; it is certain that unique challenges will arise. Some challenges include cultural differences and different religious beliefs.
This week be sure to interview at least two current or previous human resource personnel to learn unique and engaging ways to celebrate diversity within the workplace. Some large companies include diversity and inclusion staff in their human resource departments. Not all companies are large enough to have diversity and inclusion staff. Any member of the human resource team can provide insight into this topic. The insightful information that emerges should be incorporated into your assignment (annual plan).
Then, create an annual plan that explains how a human resource department could recognize and celebrate different cultures, enabling employees to understand more about the backgrounds of their fellow co-workers. The plan can include educational, cultural experiences, festivities from various cultures, etc. The experiences should include the activities, time frame, duration, and purpose. Suggestions should come from interviews and academic research for best practices among human resource departments.
