- Appreciating and Using the Power of Diversity at Work -

Course Overview

A survey by Korn/Ferry International found that millions of employees leave their jobs each year because they feel they are being treated unfairly at work. This costs employers countless billions a year in recruitment alone. The source of employee’s feeling that is being treated unfairly includes, being a woman (in a male-dominated organisation), being from a minority group, being of a certain age, sexual orientation, personal religious beliefs, physical abilities and even their educational background.

The goal of Appreciating and Using the Power of Diversity at Work is to show every employee how to foster a culture where every voice is welcome, heard, and respected. Your workplace will be a place where people enjoy coming to work each day and working with each other.
