Show full transcript for Diversity in the Workplace video

Diversity in the workplace can be summed up in one simple phrase: "Treat others the way you want to be treated." A workplace where employees practice diversity and inclusiveness on a daily basis is highly valuable. Diversity is recognizing and respecting human differences and similarities. Both employers and employees will reap many benefits in a diverse and inclusive environment, such as a positive working environment, increased communication, respect, increased cooperation, teamwork, better employee participation, loyalty, and prevention of civil rights violations.

In general, every employee has the responsibility to treat all people with respect and dignity at all times with inclusion and fairness. This includes every person no matter their race, orientation, color, language, national origin, religion, gender, age, genetics, physical or mental ability, political affiliation, socio-economic status, veteran status, or other.
