Deliverable 4 – evaluating a company’s culture for diversity
Diversity in the workplace is an increasingly complex subject, as people from different backgrounds bring unique perspectives and insights to a company. In particular, race has been identified as one of the most significant aspects of diversity with regards to cultural differences. The Millennial generation (also known as Generation Y), are those born between 1981 and 1996. They are now entering the workforce in increased numbers and will soon become a majority among its members.. Both race and generational identity can have a profound effect on how Millennials experience their work environment, both positively or negatively. A deeper understanding of these two groups can help employers find ways to bridge potential divides that may form due to misunderstandings about values, norms, language and lifestyle choices.
