BA 2410 – Module Two Homework Assignment Chapter 5 1. What is meant by the term "diversity?" How can a company make diversity management effective? In this chapter diversity is used to explain the vast differences amount people in the workplace. (differences such as race/ ethnicity, citizenship, skin color, languages, and age.) I believe from what I have read that everyone no matter who you are our where you come from can be made into a useful asset to the team. The HR managers hire their employees and then they put them in a position that they will do good at. That not only helps the employee excel in the workplace, but it keeps the work place moving in a good swift positive direction. No two persons are alike and we all have our differences that make us good at things and bad at others. The diversity management helps picks the best employees from everywhere that poses the skills that they need, everyone brings something new to the table. 2. What is the purpose of affirmative action? What employers are subject to the requirements of affirmative action and how do they comply? The purpose of affirmative action urges employers to hire groups of people based on their age, race, gender, or nationality to make up for historical discrimination. So, that gives more people the chance to be selected for the job. Women, men, minority groups all have an equal opportunity when applying for that same job. Employers are actually made to submit annual reports to show what they are doing to close the gaps between the composition of their workforce and the composition of labor markets (which is where they pick their employees). Employers use these goals, targets and timetables to specify how many of which types of individual they hope to have in their workforces in the future form these protected groups. If any business is found to be not abiding by these laws they are forced to pay large fines and possible law suits. 3. What is meant by “glass ceiling” and “glass elevators”? What suggestions can you give to employers to “break the glass”?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
