Presented by Kelly McDonald, Founder, McDonald Marketing

The U.S. population is increasingly diverse, and in some industries, the composition of the workforce is 70% minority. This shift in demographics is a permanent one and brings many changes to our society and our workforce. These changes also bring unique challenges to employers and workers as values sometimes differ between various cultures.

This presentation will focus on how you can best reach and retain diverse workers by understanding varying levels of acculturation, differences in values, and how to increase productivity and retention among your diverse workforce.

Key Points

  • Learn the core values of various cultures and how understanding these values will help you connect with your employees and co-workers in a meaningful way.

  • Learn how some employers are using innovative strategies to recruit and retain the most effective workers.
  • Do's and Don'ts are covered in detail.
