I think it would be so much better for the companies. Different people from different walks of life and with different expertise.

Yes, it is good for a company to have diverse people with diverse cultural backgrounds. Their differences can really make a big difference in the company's future success.

It is really good for business. Imagine having a team with different backgrounds and expertise? You can have the best of both worlds.

Diversity has both positive and negative effects. A potential benefit is an increase in creativity but potential challenges include an increase in conflicts and a breakdown in communication.

For the average worker, diversity means creating a workplace where they will feel more welcome and better able to be themselves, which can often lead to improved productivity.

There are also challenges and the potential for interpersonal conflict and communication problems that come with diversity. It can cause friction among employees.

Workplace diversity fosters mutual respect among employees. Whether employees work in groups comprised of co-workers with varied work styles, or colleagues who represent different cultures or generations, a synergistic work environment becomes the norm.

A perfect atmosphere may be difficult to achieve but employees recognize the many strengths and talents that diversity brings to the workplace and they gain respect for their colleagues’ performance.

Diversity causes conflict because of cultural differences. I have a colleague who interprets things differently and it's a distraction at work.

Of course. Diversity brings in an influx of different ideas which could be good for morale and productivity.

I get what you're saying. It causes drama that shouldn't be even there.

I think it's good because you learn from each other. Different people and cultures make it a good learning experience for everyone.

Diversity is good. It keeps work interesting. There are so many different cultures and people that you get to know.

Host
Not for me. Having to work with other cultures can cause conflict. What may be okay for me, may be offending to you.

I think diversity isn't always good. There are some communication barriers and that can cause some issues at work.

It does have its pros and cons. There should be trainings for cultural differences for everyone to get along at work.

I'm not really into diversity at work. There are conflicts regarding beliefs, ideas and communication.

I think it's fine. Everyone's mature enough to know what they can and say or not. It is possible to get along.

I'm not a fan of diversity. Some people just can't be flexible enough to accept differences among people. It also creates misunderstandings.

I like having different kinds of people at work. It will be a melting pot of ideas.
