workplace diversity

I need assistance on researching the population of Hispanic/Latino employees and diversity in the workplace. This is a hypothetical scenario. Hypothetically, evaluate the workplace inclusion theories and best practices for a diverse workplace that pertain to them.

Solution Preview

In this particular problem, I deem that you are being asked to present a literature review. You did not say how many possible resources so I will give you 3 which also provides inclusion theories plus ideas on best practices. I think you should have this outline:

1. Introduction - what is the paper about? Why is the topic important? - 200 words.
2. The Latino-Hispanic Population in America - here talk a little about the significance of this workforce - it would be great to flesh out some significant numbers. 250 words.
3. Your chosen literature:
a. One on diversity in the workplace -
b. One on workplace inclusion theories -
c. One on best practices for diversity -
d. As an additional resource - include a discussion of issues faced by Hispanic-Americans in the workplace using another available literature. This is separate from the above because it will talk about social issues.
5. Provide your conclusion regarding the importance of this particular study to the a. policymakers, b. social services and related agencies (i.e. the EEOC), c. the Hispanic community, d. a Hispanic-American -

The above should provide you a good outline for this particular paper. This should yield around 1,700 words but it can be smaller or lengthier d3ependent really on your preferences. I have created a sample based on this below for you. Good luck!

Generally, these are Americans who identify themselves as such, belonging to the Hispanic group as an ethnic category rather than as a race. They can also refer to immigrants (legal or illegal) who are in the United States living and working but whose origins can be traced to Latin America (geographically also known as South America but also includes the Caribbean and all Central American countries. It is therefore very broad a term but in the US, this notion of 'Hispanics' is very much associated to work migration, both legal and illegal for the purpose of economic gain. It is of interest to look into the issues faced by Hispanic Americans in relation to workplace diversity. Hispanic Americans comprise a significant percentage of the total American workforce and issues in relation to workplace equality as it relates to them are therefore important socially and ...
