Abstract


In this era of globalization, workplace diversity has become the salient aspect of any organization. It helps to increase productivity, efficiency and maintain a positive work environment within the organization. The study assessed the attitude difference that managers come across and how to get benefited from the diversity in the workforce. The investigation was set out to find the relationship between openness to diversity and managerial attitude, based on the data collected from 213 managers of the companies working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The hypotheses are used to guide the study and are tested using ANOVA. The result revealed that there exists a relationship between the manager’s demographic factors, like nationality, and the attitude towards managing the workplace. Organizations will look at the numerous benefits of this research and explain the managers’ attitudes towards managing the multicultural workforce diversity in Saudi Arabia and its benefits within the company with different expertise to do the task in an effective and efficient manner. Thus, this research will benefit the organizations by explaining the managers’ attitudes towards managing the multicultural workforce and also showing how diversity can lead to perform a task in an effective and efficient manner.
