Managing a team is becoming increasingly challenging with the rising diversity of our workforce. While diverse teams collectively present a greater wealth of experience and ideas, they often have a greater variety of communication styles, motivations, working approaches and norms, making for more complexity in team management. The purpose of this guide is to provide managers like yourself with strategies and tips to be more effective in managing your diverse teams.
This programme helps participants understand the benefits of managing workplace diversity, assess their current state of diversity management, and implement diversity management practices that are in line with the recommendations of the National Integration Working Group for Workplaces (NIWG-W). The Working Group, comprising members from government, industry and the unions, was formed under the auspices of the National Integration Council to foster inclusive and harmonious workplaces in Singapore.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Identify the current state of diversity management and reasons why managing diversity in the organisation is important
• Manage team members of different backgrounds
• Build an inclusive culture within your team
Business Owners, Managers, WSH Professional and anyone who is interested to identify opportunities for innovation at the workplace.
