"Furthermore, managing workplace diversity can reduce employee turnover and absenteeism as well as increasing recruitment opportunities and a company's image.4 According to the systematic reviews of research study by European Commission in 2003, investments in workforce diversity policies can generate short and medium-term opportunities to improve cash flows by reducing costs, resolving labor shortages, opening up new markets, and improving performance in existing markets. Also, in the long-term, the evidence indicated that managing workforce diversity will improve the quality of human capital within a company and build a differentiated reputation with key stakeholders. 6 "
