As population demographics change and globalization brings business opportunities with diverse companies to the forefront. Improving your company’s cultural and difference competencies will increase your competitive advantage.
The Population Reference Bureau (2006) predicted 100% of the U.S. workforce growth will come from new immigrants and their children between 2010 and 2030 and the Census Bureau indicated by 2050 people of color will outpace whites in population growth. Additionally, we currently have four generations of workers in today’s workplace. Such change will also change the nature and types of businesses operating domestically and abroad. Additionally, understanding that diversity stretches beyond its visible aspects (such as ethnic origin, age, and weight) but to challenges regarding political affiliation, sexuality, marital status and religion.
Companies that seek understanding and embrace inclusion rather managing difference will fare much better than those who subscribe to increasingly outdated modes of thinking. At KRS Consulting, we will help you and your employees:
- Lead and operate in a multicultural environment
- Leverage the cadre of diverse ideas and experiences of your work force and clients
- Help you move beyond awareness to inclusion
