A longitudinal comparison of aspects of diversity in two commonwealth countries
Recognising and addressing diversity and equal employment opportunity are common issues in commonwealth countries. This study focuses on pointers based on four empirical research projects conducted over 10 years in New Zealand and South Africa. The overall results show a heightened awareness of diversity and equal opportunities, which highlights an increased role for HR practitioners in both New Zealand and South Africa. This should enable the harnessing of opportunities for businesses and their leaders, to take note of the commonality between New Zealand and South Africa, which could lead to enhanced inter-country business activities and improved returns.
