Anyone who has ever been in charge of others at work has wondered about their ability to manage a diverse workforce. This can be especially challenging in a long-term care facility because managers are not only responsible for the people they supervise, they are also responsible for everyone under their team’s care. At the very least, managing a diverse workforce means following all federal, state, and local equal employment opportunity laws. But the real purpose of a diversity program is to create a positive workplace where no one feels they are at an advantage or disadvantage, leading to a happier, more productive workforce. This course discusses the relevant employment laws, how diversity is measured, and how to create a more diverse workforce.
