Acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing, and celebrating differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, spiritual practice, and public assistance status | 11th International Label Conference

The world’s increasing globalization requires more interaction among people from diverse cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds than ever before.

DIVERSITY copy

People no longer live and work in an insular marketplace; they are now part of a worldwide economy with competition coming from nearly every continent. For this reason, profit and non-profit organizations need diversity to become more creative and open to change. Maximizing and capitalizing on workplace diversity has become an important issue for management today.

Diversity issues are now considered important and are projected to become even more important in the future due to increasing differences. Companies need to focus on diversity and look for ways to become totally inclusive organizations because diversity has the potential of yielding greater productivity and competitive advantages (SHRM, 1995). Diversity is an invaluable competitive asset that companies cannot afford to ignore. Managing and valuing diversity is a key component of effective people management, which can improve workplace productivity (Black Enterprise, 2001).

A diverse workforce is a reflection of a changing world and marketplace. Diverse work teams bring high value to organizations. Respecting individual differences will benefit the workplace by creating a competitive edge and increasing work productivity. Diversity management benefits associates by creating a fair and safe environment where everyone has access to opportunities and challenges. Management tools in a diverse workforce should be used to educate everyone about diversity and its issues, including laws and regulations.

Most workplaces are made up of diverse cultures, so organizations need to learn how to adapt to be successful.

JOIN US at the 11th International Label Conference 2016 and listen to Manfred WONDRAK how you can benefit from Diversity Management

TOPIC 3 | Better collaboration between the entire value chain for healthier bottom lines | International Label Conference 2016

 

Here’s a deceptively simple question: What company brought you the iPhone?

If you said Apple you’re correct, of course — but that answer fails to account for the highly collaborative process required to produce a game-changing gadget. In reality, that phone in your pocket would not have gotten there were it not for dozens, if not hundreds, of collaborations between the tech giant and its partners around the world.

The ability to take the long view rather than fixate on short-term objectives may mark the difference between sturdy and shaky collaborations. And that difference may make all the difference when it comes to innovation.

Trust, after all, is essential in any business arrangement, but a genuine spirit of togetherness in a small group – even among companies whose strategic interests may at times conflict – is a different thing altogether, and can pay huge dividends.
