"Diversity in the workplace is a very broad term. It goes beyond the four official employment equity designated groups. It means an extensive range of people from different backgrounds: women, men, older and younger workers, single and married people, ethnic and racial minorities, people from different educational or regional backgrounds, gays and lesbians, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal peoples, people with different working styles, unionized and non-unionized employees, etc. The book reviews common policies and practices in key HR functions including recruitment, selection, hiring, on-boarding/employee orientation, training, development, promotion, retention (employee benefits such as tuition reimbursement, wellness, accommodation), and working conditions/corporate culture. Employment barriers and exclusive practices are identified and analyzed. Solutions are provided as to how to remove these barriers and exclusivities and alternative policies and practices will be provided. This book will enable managers to: Acquire and manage talent in a competitive labour market by adjusting HR methods (such as sourcing or personnel selection tools), broadening the labour pool (such as outreaching) • Modify communication and training methods/tools • Enrich performance appraisal tools • Refine retention methods • Redesign work, rearrange work facilities, and create new corporate values.
