Diversity = Harmony in the Workplace

One of the biggest questions for modern corporations is how does an organization bring workers, from diverse backgrounds, together for the sake of productivity and profits?  Diversity is a lot more than what meets the eye, it consists of race, age, sexual orientation, gender, disability, cultural backgrounds, and many other factors. Only through embracing each others diversity will we be able to work around our differences, and work with our similarities, on common ground towards a common goal – maximizing productivity with harmony.

TESTIMONIALS

” As the Director of Talent Acquisition & Development for Beall’s, Inc., I have the pleasure of sourcing, assessing and implementing our corporate training and development initiatives. In 2016 Bealls wanted to focus on the importance of cultural awareness, in order to further embrace diversity within our organization. During our annual employee appreciation meeting we invited Gobinder Gill to be our Keynote Speaker. Gobinder presented a motivational speech to our team that was fresh, inspirational, enriching, and created a wonderful message. The feedback from our team was extremely positive, and his delivery was both authentic and full of grace. Gobinder has a very moving and elegant personal presence and presented the concept of cultural diversity with tremendous warmth and genuine tone/spirit. I highly recommend Gobinder Gill for any and all opportunities that he might seek in the future.”
