Managing Workplace Diversity:561203

Question:

On successful completion of this unit, students wi ll be able to: 1. Demonstrate a clear un derstanding of the r ole cultural difference plays in a wor kforce; 2. Based on evidence, dev elop a clear workforce plan to ca ter for cultural difference; 3. Clearly identify the respecti ve oppor tunities and cha llenges various staff and teams ma y bring; Answer: Diversity refers to the presence of differences between people in the organization based on age, race, personality, tenure, education, religion, gender and more. Diversity is important in the workplace as it helps in building great reputation for the company. The aim of this paper is to develop a clear understanding and plan to cater for the cultural differences (Peretz, Levi and Fried 2015). The opportunities and challenges faced by the employees are clearly stated. Cultural diversity refers to the group of individuals belonging to different societies or cultures. Cultural diversity includes variances in language, race, religion, ethnicity and others (Boehm and Dwertmann 2014). This paper aims at identifying and reflecting on the benefits and challenges of cultural diversity in the modern organization. The benefits such as developing a competitive workforce, increasing efficiency, innovation and productivity are identified. Further, the challenges such as team communication and employee motivation are determined. These challenges shall be transformed into opportunities for value creation. The paper also provides recommendations following which the organizations can maximize value creation. Further, a business case is formulated for the chosen organization. The organizational factors as suitable for the organization are examined.

Analysing the big picture environment, the two business challenges where cultural diversity might become influential are poor team communication and low employee motivation. In the business world, competition is the most common challenge faced by the organizations. Cultural diversity is important as it helps the business in being more profitable and competitive (Boekhorst 2014). Diversity does not mean simply having a heterogeneous workforce but is s also about developing new products, services and business concepts. The managers realize the need of diversity in the workplace to conceive new ideas and opinions. This can add to the competitive advantage of the business. However, the concept of cultural diversity may be a failure as it brings significant challenges in terms of team communication. Professional communication is misinterpreted and difficult to understand due to different language and culture. The communication style in the Western cultures is less discrete when they present their message (Mor-Barak 2013). Therefore, the communication between a Westerner and non-Westerner can cause confusion in the workplace. Although the diverse cultures add to the cohesiveness of the organization, but the perception causing confusion may hamper the productivity. Accents and fluency is an obvious challenge in a diverse workplace. Although English is the standard language across the globe, but the people not speaking English may go unnoticed and unappreciated. The employees may become less motivated as a team player and the organization may seem to have a fail in profitability (Brunow and Blien 2014).

Business Model Development:574741

Question:

Describe about the Business Model Development.

Answer:

1.0 Introduction

Skill enables an individual to enhance their individuality. Attachment of the concept of “trade” in the skills reflects utilization of the individuals for the commercial purposes. This is the end of his personal space. Ineffective utilization of the possessed skills makes the individuals inactive, which stains the intellectual applications (Kindström and Kowalkowski 2014). This report adds a digital tone to the innate skills, possessed by the individuals from their infant stage. The “digitalization” proposed in the earlier sentence adds a modern touch to the lives of the individuals. Speculating the concept of “skills” from the modern perspective, humans hardly find time to make judicious utilization of the possessed knowledge. This is in reference to the drab, monotony that they undergo for attaining a meaningful existence. Incapability in this direction compels the individuals to encounter losses in their lives, which detaches them from their personal as well as professional development (Armstrong and Taylor 2014). In this perspective, the startup company, Skill Trader would be a relief for the public domain in terms of proper utilization of the possessed skills, expertise and knowledge.
