The Importance of Diversity In The Workplace
Managing Technical Professionals is now available on Pluralsight! Visit hoffstech.com/managingtechpros to view the course preview!

When employees work with other people from different backgrounds, they have the opportunity to learn from one another to produce higher quality products and services. Having a diverse workplace will also foster a positive working environment in which your employees will grow and thrive. Expand Your Talent Pool When your business is a champion for diversity in the workplace, you will expand your talent pool. Your employees will have different skill sets, backgrounds, and experiences. They will be able to collaborate together and learn from each other which will make them more well-rounded employees. Promote Innovation When employees with diverse backgrounds collaborate on projects, this will promote innovation on your team and within your organization. Innovation will come from the conflicts that arise when teams are diverse. When you listen to many different ideas from different types of people, you will have the opportunity to combine ideas to create innovation for your products or services. Grow Your Business Businesses with a diverse employee base are known to have an equally diverse customer base. When your business shows that they understand the importance of diversity in the workplace, you will attract different types of customers which will help grow your business. Your employees can also bring in customers via word of mouth which will help expand your customer base. Improve Your Business Reputation The culture of your business is imperative if you want to attract and retain top talent within your organization. Businesses with a diverse employee base are known to have conflict but they also resolve conflict to come up with new innovations for daily tasks or business processes. These innovations will help your employees grow and thrive in their careers. Through speaking with their colleagues and customers, your employees positive stories about their work will propagate a positive reputation for your business.

Managing Cross Cultural Remote Teams | Ricardo Fernandez | TEDxIESEBarcelona
Ricardo talks about the every day complexities of working remotely and managing a team of 30 people from very different cultures and backgrounds. He discusses the benefits of working remotely and the ability to prise productivity over presence. However, there are some interesting challenges - people can have different perceptions of time management, speak the same language but have different interpretations, etc. Challenges like these get compounded when working remotely. Ricardo is not an expert in cross cultural communication but has over the last 10 years been working remotely with several companies and teams from many different countries. He was born in Spain but spent most of his time living abroad between the USA, France, Netherlands, and Puerto Rico, where he learnt how to adapt to the differences in every day conversation and activities. He currently lives in Madrid and works remotely as Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for Prodigy Finance; a company that is spread around the world and has expanded the use of remote working to be more efficient in the workplace. His work philosophy is making people happy and giving them the tools they need so they excel in their workplace – one of them being able to manage their time. Personal happiness will bring about success in the workplace and millennials or younger generations demand flexible work environments.

Drive innovation through cognitive diversity | Li Chang | TEDxCharleston
Hardly a day goes by when most of us don’t ask ourselves the question: how can this be done better? Maybe it’s at work, at home or even while sitting in traffic. We always want better results with less effort, less waste or in less time. Li Chang, a Boeing engineer and technical fellow, not only gets to ask this question for a living, he leads a team of like-minded folks that focus on leveraging diverse knowledge and strengths to build a culture of better products, experiences and innovations. Li shares how creating a diverse thinking culture can improve gap intelligence and integrate creative, constructive and strategic thinking for innovation. Creativity, when combined with logic and reasoning, leads to new products, methodologies, and productivity increases that can often determine whether an organization thrives or dies. Team effort shows that innovation can occur not only across a company, including the accounting department, within facilities management, human resources and even with the legal team, but can also serve to innovate across industries With more than 20 years of engineering experience, Li Chang is an Associate Technical Fellow for The Boeing Company. He is an acknowledged Subject Matter Expert in Technological Innovation and is recognized as an innovation leader focused on strategic integration and implementation of innovations for value creation. As a Boeing engineer and technical fellow, Li Chang is always asking: how can we do this better? A leader that invokes the leaders within his team, his work is focused on leveraging complementary strengths to build a culture of better products, experiences, and innovations.

A recent ILO-Gallup report, based on a survey of 142 countries and territories, shows that women want to work in paid jobs but there remains a significant gap between women’s aspirations and the labour market reality.

Cultural Sensitivity & Diversity (20 minute training course preview)
http://bit.ly/D-Dennis-Cultural-Diversity-Sensitivity Interacting effectively with different cultures is an essential skill for anyone working in a diverse environment.

Lego Serious Play for Strategy | Rob Oddi
Rob Oddi Change management expert and consultant, facilitator of Lego Serious Play, a facilitated thinking and problem-solving technique used by diverse organizations like NASA, the United Nations, Google, Fedex, and New Balance. It may seem silly at first but, according to Rob, many organizations agree that "the traditional ways of doing strategy are not working." Research suggests that your hands are connected to up to 90% of the brain cells, so getting your hands involved in strategizing, via Lego Serious Play for example, engages more of your brain power. It also helps players unleash their creativity and their metaphor abilities. It's easy to think of using Legos to represent a tower, but how about a marriage? The conversations built around the resulting 3D models takes on another dimension and enables people to get deeper into a problem, as well as potential solutions. The one rule of Lego Serious Play? You can never question the builder; you can only question the model. SolutionsIQ's Leslie Morse (with her whirlygig) hosts at Change Management 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Amazon's 14 Leadership Principles via Jeff Bezos
Amazon Interview Coaching: http://www.amazoninterview.coach/index.html#services --- 1. Customer obsession: start with the customer and work backwards; work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust; pay attention to competitors, but keep obsessing over customers 2. Ownership: think like an owner, long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results; act on behalf of the entire company, not just for your own team; never say “that’s not my job" 3. Invent and simplify: expect and require innovation and invention from your team and always find ways to simplify; be externally aware, always look for new ideas from everywhere, and don’t be limited by “not invented here" 4. Leaders are right a lot 1:52 : you have strong judgment and good instincts; you seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm your beliefs 5. Frugality 3:50 : accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size or fixed expense 6. Hire and develop the best 5:01 : raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion; recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization; develop leaders and take seriously your role in coaching others 7. Earn trust 5:05 : listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. Be vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing; leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume; benchmark yourself and your team against the best. 8. Insist on the highest standards 7:42 : you have relentlessly high standards - many may think these standards are unreasonably high; you are continually raising the bar and driving your team to deliver high quality products, services and processes; defects do not get sent down the line and problems are fixed so they stay fixed 9. Bias for action 11:34 : speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking. 10. Learn and be curious 11:34 : you are never done learning and you always seek to improve; you are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them 11. Have backbone. Disagree and commit 13:26 : respectfully challenge decisions when you disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting; have conviction and be tenacious; do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion; once a decision is determined, commit to it. 12. Dive deep 13:26 : operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and be skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ. No task is beneath you. 13. Think big 16:04 : thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. Think differently and look around corners for ways to serve customers. 14. Deliver results 16:04 : focus on the key inputs for your business and deliver with the right quality and in a timely fashion; despite setbacks, rise to the occasion and never settle

GTI2017 SEP: Preparing for Tomorrow's Diverse Workforce - Kronos
Presenter: Murtz Kizilbash Company or Organization Name: Kronos Preparing today for tomorrow’s increasingly diverse workforce For the first time in history that there are five generations at work together, and the business implications of such a diverse workforce working side by side cannot be overestimated. Recently, 60 percent of CEOs surveyed by PricewaterhouseCoopers indicated that the multigenerational workforce will in fact “transform” business and government in the near future. For governments prepared to manage an increasingly diverse workforce, this transformation can be productive — and effective. As workforce demographics shift and your employee makeup becomes more varied, a long-term human capital management (HCM) plan as part of your workforce management strategy is more essential than ever. By 2025, Millennials — born between 1981 and 2000 — will account for 75% of the global workforce. Today, by comparison, Millennials represent only about 34% of the workforce. Organizations must be ready for big changes to come — changes that include how to attract, hire, incentivize, and retain employees, as well as how to measure and reward productivity, manage absence, and create a culture that resonates with this new generation of workers. Without a doubt, HR professionals will be key players in readying your organization for these seismic shifts within your greatest asset — your workforce.

The Equality Officer as a Change Agent to Promote Diversity in Organizations - Maria Medina-Vicent
Title: The Equality Officer as a Change Agent to Promote Diversity in Organizations Description: Gender inequality persists in the workplace; it is based on unfair structures, the sexual division of labour market and the persistence of gender stereotypes. All together operates to relegate women to an inferior social position. Based on this reality, building more diverse organizations is a concern of states around the world and supranational organizations like the European Union. However, beyond the legal requirements on effective equality between women and men, we consider that a real transformation of companies implies to radically change the corporate culture. For this reason, we must recognize the moral dimension of organizations, and the fact that they have a decision-making structure that allows us to see them as moral agents. From our point of view, the professional figure of Equality Officer can become a driver of change in these organizations, because it is a central figure to incorporate the gender perspective in the decision-making structure. Thus, the central object of this study is the role of the Equality Officer in the moral structure of business organizations, in order to encourage diversity.

Improving Diversity and Inclusion
Organizations that embrace diversity and inclusion outperform those that don’t; as Joy Thomas, President and CEO of CPA Canada and an IFAC Board Member, puts it, “Not only is [diversity and inclusion] the right thing to do but it is a business imperative.” Creating a constructive culture can help organizations facilitate diversity and inclusion. For example, organizations can move the needle by establishing multiple channels for employees to communicate their concerns to senior management.

Diversity of Groups Isn't Enough: We Need Diverse Experiences to Problem Solve | Beau Lotto
Being close-minded is like being in handcuffs—you can't let yourself out, someone has to pop the lock for you. That's why diversity matters, says neuroscientist Beau Lotto. Meeting others unlocks our perception. We spend our lives in the cuffs of our own assumptions, but encountering people who think and act differently teaches us so much about ourselves, and what we may have been blind to up until that point. If creativity is the act of thinking differently, then surrounding ourselves with a diversity of people, with diverse life experiences, can radically expand our field of possibility. Technology is another way to do that, says Lotto, and if you leaf through history it's apparent that the most radical technological breakthroughs are the ones that have expanded our perceptions: the printing press gave us books, which let us see other people's stories; the telescope gave us the universe, which gave us curiosity (and humility); the ship gave us mobility, which gave us cultural and material trade. Technology enables us "to see things that we could never have seen before," and it makes the invisible visible, says Lotto. The more layers of meaning we can detect—whether through diversity or technology—the better we're able to think, innovate, and connect. Beau Lotto's new book is Deviate: The Science of Seeing Differently. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/beau-lotto-how-diversity-melts-away-our-biases-and-technology-is-the-great-equalizer Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Beau Lotto: If the process of seeing differently is the process of first and foremost having awareness of the fact that everything you do has an assumption, figuring out what those are—and by the way, the best person to reveal your own assumptions to you is not yourself, it’s usually someone else, hence the power of diversity, the importance of diversity. Because not only does that diversity reveal your own assumptions to you, but it can also complex-ify your assumptions. Because we know from complex systems theory that the best solution is most likely to exist within a complex search space, not a simple search space, simply because of statistics. So whereas a simple search space is more adaptable, it’s more easy to adapt, it’s less likely to contain the best solution. So what we really want is a diversity of possibilities, a diversity of assumptions—which diverse groups, for instance, enable. But also diverse experience. So one of the best ways to diversify, complex-ify your search space, your assumptions, is through experience. And one of the great ways to do that is actually through technology. So we think about technology, and most of our technologies are good technologies. But what defines a great technology? What is a transformative technology? The good technologies are the ones that enable us to do what we can already do faster, easier, more efficiently. And that’s because so much of our society focuses on efficiency. It’s about maximizing performance. We’re great engineers but we’re crap philosophers. We’re very good at making things more efficient, but that’s only one side of innovation.We also need the other side of innovation, which is creativity. And so the best technologies are the ones—in my view—that make the invisible visible. They enable us to see things that we could never have seen before. They create assumptions. They expand our space of assumptions. We typically think, of course, of digital technologies, but we can also think of the telescope, the microscope. In fact we can even think of the sail. So the sail was in one sense invented on the Nile, because the currents the wind go in opposite directions. So you could sail up current and then you could float back down. But what the sail enables us to do was to travel, which meant we could see different ecologies, different cultures. Which, when approached in an open way, enabled us to not only challenge but expand our assumptions, because we would have incorporated their biases into our own. So you could view it in a different way. The best transformative technologies enable us to travel. But not just travel physically. Travel in our minds. So a book, writing, this also leads onto things like augmented reality and even virtual reality. So in our case we’ve actually done experiments and created a whole platform in augmented reality to see if we can explore how the brain makes meaning by engaging with a new layer in the world. Not to replace the real world but to expand it.

Purpose and Diversity in the Workplace
Companies continue to struggle with moving the needle on diversity and inclusion, as demonstrated by their lack of ability to shift demographics and representation of female and minority talent. Especially in today’s shifting landscape, we need to think more broadly about the very definitions of diversity which will resonate most with current and future talent. New research on the role of purpose points to powerful new ways to approach the inclusion conversation. The inclusion of purpose as a diversity dimension provides a framework that resonates when considered alongside visible diversity characteristics such as gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, to name a few. This ground-breaking focus on purpose has the potential to humanize work and celebrate the potential of everyone, and provides a powerful new tool for every organization in making tangible progress.

For full courses see: http://complexitylabs.io/courses Transcription excerpt: Complexity theory is a set of theoretical frameworks used for modeling and analyzing complex systems within a variety of domains. Complexity has proven to be a fundamental feature to our world that is not amenable to our traditional methods of modern science, and thus as researchers have encountered it within many different areas from computer science to ecology to engineering they have had to develop new sets of models and methods for approaching it. Out of these different frameworks has emerged a core set of commonalities that over the past few decades has come to be recognized as a generic framework for studying complex systems in the abstract. Complexity theory encompasses a very broad and very diverse set of models and methods, as yet there is no proper formulation to structure and give definition to this framework, thus we will present it as a composite of four main areas that encompasses the different major perspective on complex systems and how to best interpret them. Firstly systems theory; Systems theory is in many ways the mother of complexity theory, before there was complexity theory, systems theory was dealing with the ideas of complexity, self-organization, adaptation and so on, almost all interpretations to complexity depend upon the concept of a system. In the same way that modern science can be formalized within the formal language of mathematics, all of complex systems science can be formalized within the language of systems theory but, systems theory is a very abstract and powerful formal language and it is typically too abstract for most people and thus is understood and used relatively little. Cybernetics is another closely related area of systems theory, it was also part in forming the foundation to complexity theory, cybernetics during the mid to late 20th century studied control systems and provided a lot of the theoretical background to modern computing, and thus we can see how the interplay between computing and complexity science goes all the way back to its origins as the two have developed hand-in-hand. A lot of systems theory is associated with and has come out of the whole area of computation. The areas of computer science and its counter part information theory have continued to be one of the few major contributors to complexity theory in many different ways, though systems theory is about much more than just computers it is a fully fledged formal language. Next nonlinear systems and chaos theory; Nonlinearity is an inherent feature and major theme that crosses all areas of complex systems. A lot of nonlinear systems theory has its origins in quite dense and obscure mathematics and physics. Out of the study of certain types of equations, weather patterns, fluid dynamics and particular chemical reactions has emerged some very counter intuitive phenomena in the form of the butterfly effect and chaos. Chaos theory, which is the study of nonlinear dynamical systems, was one of the first major challenges to the Newtonian paradigm that was except into the mainstream body of scientific knowledge. Our modern scientific framework is based upon linear systems theory and this places significant constrains upon it, linear systems theory is dependent upon the concept of a system having an equilibrium, although linear systems theory often works as an approximation, the fact is that many of the phenomena we are interested in describing are nonlinear and process of change such as regime shifts within ecosystems and society, happen far-from-equilibrium they are governed by the dynamics of feedback loops and not linear equations. Trying to model complex systems by using traditional linear systems theory is like trying to put a screw into a piece of wood with a hammer, we are simply using the wrong tool because it is the only one we have. Thus the areas of nonlinear systems and their dynamics is another major part to the framework of complexity theory that has come largely from physics, mathematics and the study of far-from-equilibrium processes in chemistry.

What does HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT mean? HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT meaning - HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT definition - HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Human resource management (HRM or simply HR) is the management of human resources. It is designed to maximize employee performance in service of an employer's strategic objectives. HR is primarily concerned with the management of people within organizations, focusing on policies and on systems. HR departments are responsible for overseeing employee benefits design, employee recruitment, training and development, performance appraisal, and rewarding (e.g., managing pay and benefit systems). HR also concerns itself with organizational change and industrial relations, that is, the balancing of organizational practices with requirements arising from collective bargaining and from governmental laws. HR is a product of the human relations movement of the early 20th century, when researchers began documenting ways of creating business value through the strategic management of the workforce. It was initially dominated by transactional work, such as payroll and benefits administration, but due to globalization, company consolidation, technological advances, and further research, HR as of 2015 focuses on strategic initiatives like mergers and acquisitions, talent management, succession planning, industrial and labor relations, and diversity and inclusion. Human Resources is a business field focused on maximizing employee productivity. Human Resources professionals manage the human capital of an organization and focus on implementing policies and processes. They can be specialists focusing in on recruiting, training, employee relations or benefits. Recruiting specialists are in charge of finding and hiring top talent. Training and development professionals ensure that employees are trained and have continuous development. This is done through training programs, performance evaluations and reward programs. Employee relations deals with concerns of employees when policies are broken, such as harassment or discrimination. Someone in benefits develops compensation structures, family leave programs, discounts and other benefits that employees can get. On the other side of the field are Human Resources Generalists or Business Partners. These human resources professionals could work in all areas or be labor relations representatives working with unionized employees. In startup companies, trained professionals may perform HR duties. In larger companies, an entire functional group is typically dedicated to the discipline, with staff specializing in various HR tasks and functional leadership engaging in strategic decision-making across the business. To train practitioners for the profession, institutions of higher education, professional associations, and companies themselves have established programs of study dedicated explicitly to the duties of the function. Academic and practitioner organizations may produce field-specific publications. HR is also a field of research study that is popular within the fields of management and industrial/organizational psychology, with research articles appearing in a number of academic journals, including those mentioned later in this article. Businesses are moving globally and forming more diverse teams. It is the role of human resources to make sure that these teams can function and people are able to communicate cross culturally and across borders. Due to changes in business, current topics in human resources are diversity and inclusion as well as using technology to advance employee engagement. In the current global work environment, most companies focus on lowering employee turnover and on retaining the talent and knowledge held by their workforce. New hiring not only entails a high cost but also increases the risk of a newcomer not being able to replace the person who worked in a position before. HR departments strive to offer benefits that will appeal to workers, thus reducing the risk of losing corporate knowledge.
