Posted by Lark Scheierman on Mon, Jan 11, 2016 @ 07:15 AM

""Diversity refers to "human qualities” that are different from our own and those of groups to which we belong, but that are manifested in other individuals and groups. Dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to: age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities or qualities, race, sexual orientation, educational background, geographic location, income, marital or partner status, military experience, parental status, religious beliefs, work experience, and job classification. Diversity is about what makes us unique and includes our backgrounds, personality, life experiences and beliefs. It is a combination of the visible and the invisible differences that shape our view of the world, our perspective and our approach.

KnowledgeLeader’s latest risk and control matrix (RCM) focuses on the risks and controls common to the diversify workforce business process. Sample risks include:

  • Human resources does not communicate and monitor compliance with company policies and legal requirements, resulting in fines, penalties or litigation
