Description: Businesses are at the crossroads of a new economic phenomenon: new professional immigrants will be the driving workforce in the modern Western business world. To survive and thrive in today’s competitive economic environment, businesses of all sizes must move beyond merely embracing the concept of diversity to the practical application of policies and procedures that foster cross-cultural understanding and cooperation in the workplace. Achieving Prosperity through Diversity provides rare insights and practical advice on how to recruit, train, and retain a diverse workforce by someone who has first-hand experience in overcoming racial prejudice in the workplace. Gobinder Gill has drawn on his personal experience and career successes in Vancouver’s media and entertainment industry to create an invaluable guide for business owners, managers, professionals, board members, and business leaders interested in cultivating a workplace in which cultural diversity is recognized as a vital component to their company’s success. This book is for you if you’re: · an executive responsible for maintaining your company’s competitive advantage · a manager who wants more cohesive working groups · a human resources professional who wants to improve ethnic representation in your company · a sales person interested in tapping into new global markets · an employee or manager who wants to improve the working environment and on-the-job employee satisfaction · a job seeker wishing to avoid and/or prevent discrimination, bias, and stereotyping in the job search process. The book also offers tips for new immigrants trying to break into the workforce in the Western world. And finally, it discusses business etiquette in different cultures, and offers tips for westerners working abroad. The book is intended for all corporations and companies that want to harness the full potential of their workforce in the global marketplace of the 21st century.
