HR Series: Diversity Management – Why it matters!

Segment 1 :
Singapore has become more socially diverse in recent years and much of this has come about because the country has positioned itself at the intersection of global attraction.

When a company has different people from different countries and age groups communicating and working together, it is important to understand how the different cultures and generation may see each other and to be aware of the “cultural minefield” that may exist within an organization.

Diversity management is an important area for companies to focus on.

In this interactive workshop, it will help SMEs understand the importance of diversity management when attracting and retaining emploiyees. If managed well, it also helps in promoting innovation.

Two key aspects of diversity will be covered:
1) Cultural Diversity
2) Multi-Age & Generation Diversity 

Segment 2:
