Managing Diverse Employees

Irish society is changing. With 10% of its workforce being non-national and a substantial portion being diverse the modern Irish workforce is no longer homogenous. While this has many advantages and is indeed the strength of many workforces, it also brings with it disadvantages and is a source of potential conflict. The key to managing diversity is in minimising the negative effect of a diverse workforce and maximising the positive influence diversity offers. This course looks at the manner in which Irish workforces are changing, how diverse workforces interact, and the negative and positive impact of diversity on a company’s workforce. A large portion of the course will be spent on helping participants develop the skills necessary to manage a diverse workforce in order to gain the benefits of diversity while minimising the negative aspect.

  • To understand the modern diverse workforce
  • To gain the knowledge and skills necessary to develop strategies to minimise the negative influence of diversity on a workforce
