This Globe & Mail article examines why some businesses are committed to having a diverse workforce. Diversity is the new workplace buzzword because:

  • A shrinking labour pool is forcing employers to look at¬†workers who have been traditionally marginalized.
  • Business is becoming more global in nature and it can be a distinct advantage to have staff who are culturally sensitive and can speak other languages.
  • Organizations are seeing the benefit of their workforce being able to represent the customers they serve.
