Running head: 1 Diversity in the Workplace Diversity among the human population is on the rise, and what use to be the majority is now becoming a minority. Companies around the globe must now adjust for the problems that may arise with such a diverse workforce.

The specific tasks of this writer’s job are to ensure the care custody and control of the inmate population of SCI Cresson. This task, depending on the day can be very simple where the officers go through their shift with no discrepancies, or it can be very difficult where problems arise within the inmate population and a more diverse staff would be able to resolve these instances much easier.
