Diversity training and education are a continuous process in today’s diverse workplace. With any organization, training and education becomes a necessity, especially after a sexual harassment or a discrimination suit.
They are a reaction rather than a standing policy of diversity and acceptance. This is costly, detrimental, and backward method to conduct business in the 21st century.
However, astute owners, managers and leader understand the value of honest discussion, training and education as part of a corporate policy. More businesses than ever before are beginning to pay attention.
They also regularly assess employee’s strengths and weakness, provide training and education to fill in the gap, recruit employees to complement and further establish a supportive workforce.
Businesses that take a proactive approach to diversity and cultural awareness training have a harmonious work environment and that equals profits and productivity.
