Developing the Respectful Culture in Religion Diversity in the Workplace

Cultivate and share ways to create an inclusive culture for different religion practices in the workplace

Strategic Partner: The Executive Centre

Description

Asia has been multi-faith region for years, given the diversity of beliefs and practices among Anglicans, Catholics, Methodists, Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Muslim, etc. Organisations that are driving diversity and inclusion need to set up an accommodating culture to enable their employees or potential employees to feel free observe different religious duties in the offices.  

Different religions have different viewpoints towards issues like religious attires, office decorations, LBGT rights, etc.  

If leaders are not aware of nor do not have the right skills in handling these diverse views, there can be negative effects on team cohesiveness and relationships among team members. Managers must ensure that they avoid cultural biases and value the skills of religiously and culturally diverse members and potential candidates. Education of religious diversity in the office is crucial to encourage religious acceptance and avoid stereotyping or discrimination in the workplace across Asia.
