Workplace diversity and corporate culture

Workplace diversity and corporate culture. Organizations often have a “corporate culture” or very identifiable values, traits, or markers in the organization. They have a certain kind of environment, norms of behavior or “reputation” that is known. Can you think of any examples??

Cultural Relativism

A concept that requires an individual to consider the actions, traits, and beliefs within their own cultural context to gain a better perspective on their attitude and understanding of another’s culture (maintaining objectivity, not judging other’s values and beliefs as “good” or “bad”).

Workforce Diversity

Sociologists categorize generational groups into cohorts- members of a generational time span who are linked by shared life events and experiences in their formative years. Leaders in organizations have to manage a multi-generational workforce. Each generation reacts to the other  – may deem values and behaviors of others as “flawed” instead of culturally different.
