This paper presents an overview of the responsibilities and challenges of the typical human resources manager and his (or her) team. The paper places particular attention on the cultural divide that human resources managers will inevitably encounter when a corporation overruns a domestic entity and swallows up local members of the workforce.

From the Paper:

"In addition, we are subjected to governmental regulations about equal opportunities for all. We can consider this "managing diversity". In essence, this means that the workers reflect the cultures and societies from which they came: not merely third world nations' immigrants, but women, now empowered to seek and merit equal opportunities and pay, as well as older workers, fearing replacement by younger ones. "One manager has told me 'People talk a lot about race and gender, but for us the biggest diversity issue is between senior and junior white male managers. They simply don't understand one another.'" (Thomas, 1991, p, 11) It may be a major problem in disciplinary actions for the disparity between ambitious and eager younger workers, managers or simply workers, and their elders. "I've been around a lot longer and I know what I'm doing" may often be the words to spark serious controversy resulting in some sort of disciplinary action. As we go through the hiring process, and the follow-up to assure optimal performance and obeying the company rules, a good definition for diversity management is: "a comprehensive managerial process for developing an environment that works for all employees. (Thomas, 1991, p. 10)"
