What are some of the “pros” of having a diverse workforce in a healthcare environment
Guidelines: This assignment requires you to post an original thought and respond to one of your classmates thoughts. In total, you will need to make two posts. Your original thought must be at least two paragraphs in length with five sentences in each paragraph (should include a FULL citation – not just a web link). Your response post must be at least one paragraph in length with five sentences (does not need a citation). While the original post should include a citation, please remember that this is not a formal academic paper and your postings should retain a “discussion” flavor.
Topic: One of the key trends raised by our learning module this week relates to the growing diversity of our population as well as our workforce.
Original Post 1) What are some of the “pros” of having a diverse workforce in a healthcare environment? 2) What are some of the “cons” of having a diverse workforce in a health care environment? 3) What are two or three human resources management tools that you learned about during this semester that will be most helpful to you in managing a diverse workforce?
Response Post Your second post should constructively respond to one of your classmate’s posts. Please use full sentences. Remember “I agree” or “good job on the posting” sentences DO NOT count toward the 5 required sentences.
Sources: To receive full credit, you must cite at least one academic or government source to support your position in your original thought post. Please do not cite your book – this assignment requires you to do additional work. The following websites are not appropriate academic citations: Wikipedia.com; Ehow.com; Ask.com; About.com or anything in the same genre.
