Individual Project 500- 750 words

 

You have just been hired as the human resources (HR) manager by your company's chief executive officer (CEO). During your interview process, the CEO indicated that in the last 2 decades, the workforce demographics of her company have changed dramatically. Although this had been occurring, both the previous HR manager as well as all of the company's front-line supervisors have remained as they had been for years: primarily white males, now in their 50s and early 60s, from a Judeo-Christian background. The CEO indicated that at a frequent rate, workplace strife had been increasing, and it seemed to be related to the changing demographics of the workforce itself. The CEO asked you to compile a training manual that consists of sections targeted at the training of the existing front-line supervisors. Later on, there will be sensitivity training as well as to help all employees understand the changing workforce and what it might mean for them.

To complete the CEO's request for a comprehensive training manual, she has asked you to first create a table of contents for the manual and to complete at least 20% of the manual itself.

Diversity Training Manual: Overview

The content of the final complete manual will be developed throughout the course and will need to cover diversity issues, specifically the following forms of discrimination: 

  • Religious
  • Ethnic
  • Gender
  • Age

There also must be information regarding the following information:

  • Recent trends
  • Forecasts about the changing general population
  • Legislation covering these type issues

There will need to be subsections that deal with the following information:

  • Customs and values of each group
  • The need for sensitivity to differing values and customs
  • Legislation affecting supervisor regulations

Diversity Training Manual: Part I

Given that the training manual will be dealing with several diversity issues, prepare the table of contents and write the first part of the manual, which should deal with some useful background for the company's supervisors and managers.

The first parts that the CEO wants completed are as follows:

  • A preliminary outline of the entire manual (this may change as you work on the project)
  • The table of contents
  • The following sections regarding the demographics of the U.S. population should be included:
    • Current statistics
    • Recent trends
    • Forecasted trends
  • Using the Web sites listed, present information about trends in the U.S. populations regarding the following information:
    • Immigrant versus native
    • Religion
    • Age
    • Race

Use the following Web sites:

As the manager of human resources (HR), the firm's chief executive officer (CEO) frequently asks you to describe what issues may arise in the workplace as a result of increasing diversity of the workplace. This will enable him to be better prepared to address these issues. For example if a particular religious minority will be increasing in size in the local community, this will probably be reflected in your workforce, and the CEO would like to train the supervisors in any issues that may be encountered.

From any of the following changes in workforce demographics that you may have observed in your work experience, describe how those changes may have specifically impacted productivity, group behavior and teamwork, work assignments, and any other area on which you would like to comment.

Sources of these demographic changes may include race, religious, age, and gender.

Possible sources to use for gathering your information could be as follows:

  • Your current or prior work experience
  • Anecdotes from family and friends who have long work
