Have you ever wondered how a heterogeneous mix of people that exist in many workplaces work towards achieving a common goal? Ever figured how a balance is struck during situations when ideas and solutions get generated from different minds? The answer is diversity management. The credit goes to the diversity management efforts incorporated by many organizations, as they are creating a unity out of diversity. According to J R Patrick, head–HR , Mando India Ltd, it is vital for an organization to have a diverse work culture. Organizations must learn to manage diversity for their existence in the future. “We have about 34 per cent women employees in our workplace, especially on the shop floor and young operating engineers from seven states in India including Andaman and Nicobar Islands and a lot of expatriates also work with us,” informs Patrick.
