A Case Study in Success: Religious Diversity in the Workplace

SHRM 2012 Diversity & Inclusion Conference & Exposition
This session will provide you with a checklist for effecively addressing religion in your workplace.

For most HR practitioners, addressing religious diversity in the workplace begins and ends with litigation avoidance. Companies tend to exclude religion from their diversity strategies, and those who are interested in the topic often aren’t sure where to start. Informed by Tanenbaum’s benchmarking and research, this session will work through a case study by examining what it takes to successfully address religion at a sample company, including exemplary policies, training opportunities and diversity initiatives that also strengthen the bottom line.
