What Is Multiculturalism In The Workplace?

Bell (2012) suggests that diversity can be viewed as real or perceived differences among people in race, ethnicity, sex, age, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, religion, work and family status, weight and appearance, and other identity-based attributes that affect their interactions and relationships. It is a tall order description. But this variance if utilized correctly, can fortify the company’s presence in the industry of operations, recruit and retain talented individuals in addition to positioning the company to surpass their desired goals. Multiculturalism is about different ethnicities; it could be used to describe the ethnic makeup of an organization. This term can be deployed to describe Europeans who come from different parts of the European continent. It could be used too to describe Africans who could be affiliated to parts of the African continent. The same word can also be applied to describe Asian Americans who can speak different languages and possess differing views on religion, politics or customs, among many other cultural variables originating from specific places in Asia. For example, Indians or Chinese may have unique religious practices and all can be found in the modern American workplace.
