Diversity management

Diversity management measures are a good way of ensuring your co-workers are ready to receive the new recruits.

There are several approaches to introducing diversity management at work. There is no single solution. For example, you can foster your workforce’s intercultural skills by raising the awareness of your German co-workers about an open, multicultural work climate. Alternatively, you can recommend that your workforce take part in open information events. These are hosted by organisations and associations engaged in social diversity.

To foster appreciation and trust among co-workers of different faiths, introduce cultural and religious calendars. That gives the entire workforce the opportunity to celebrate important holidays in appropriate ways. KOFA (centre of excellence for securing qualified professionals) provides further recommendations on diversity management.

Tip: Foster intercultural exchanges between your co-workers. By cooking, celebrating or doing sport together, your foreign employees will get to know their German colleagues faster and improve their language skills at the same time.
