Over the last decade the emphasis of diversity has shifted from assimilating people into existing workplace cultures to ‘managing diversity’ and capitalising on that diversity. Diversity is critical for organisations. The economic and business changes that are occurring, such as open markets, mass customisation, outsourcing and cross functional team-working, together with changing demographics, mean that organisations will have little choice but to have effective diversity policies to ensure they are recruiting from the widest possible pool. Diversity is a key enabler of business strategy and lies at the heart of an organisation’s choices about the future.
