Diversity management - Harnessing diversity in the workplace
It is only in the last few years that a small number of, generally larger organisations, have systematically introduced diversity management programmes in Ireland. The key drivers behind diversity management in the international context are having an increasing-ly strong influence in Ireland. These include changing work-force demographics in an increasingly competitive global marketplace and the increasing emphasis placed on company and workplace ethics. However, some of the drivers in Ireland have been domestic in origin such as the equality regulatory framework provided by the Employment Equality Act, 1998 and the Equal Status Act, 2000.
This report "Harnessing diversity in the workplace" looks at some of the economic, legal and demographic drivers for diversity management. It also examines the business case for diversity management, and offers suggestions for a diversity management model, that organisations could adapt to their own needs.
