Delving into Diversity - Targeted Needs Training  

According to the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, the U.S. workforce (generally ages 25 to 64) is in the midst of a sweeping demographic transformation. From 1980 to 2020, the white working-age population is projected to decline from 82% to 63% while during the same period, the minority portion of the workforce is projected to double from 18% to 37%. The failure to manage diverse employees results in lawsuits, turnover, and lowered productivity—things that you don’t want for your company or yourself. This course goes beyond a legal understanding of fair supervisory practices to assist in building a culture that maximizes the potential of diversity.
