Take steps to ensure that the workforce is inclusive of people of different religions and beliefs

Key points

  • Employers that are sensitive to the cultural and religious needs of their employees should reap the rewards of this in terms of the effect on the bottom line.
  • Employers should go beyond a compliance-based approach to promote understanding and awareness of different religions and beliefs. Where they do not, their actions to address discrimination may lead to resentment and a sense of exclusion among some employees.
