Different regions are characterized as having different culture which entails beliefs, attitudes and way of doing things. This is why the growth of globalization has led to the development of standardization where organizations that operate in the international market are expected to set their management practices on acceptable international standards. This helps facilitate their effective existence in different foreign markets. With the growth of globalization increase in technological advancements and enhancements in transportation have led to individuals being able to work in foreign environments and also organizations are now increasingly operating in foreign markets (Peterson & Soendergaard, 2012). What these changes mean for business organizations is that now they have to manage diversity among employees. Just like the impacts of global operations, diversity is broad. However within human resource management, the common variables of diversity include gender, ethnicity, physical abilities, political beliefs, sexual orientation, race, age, religion, and socioeconomic background among other differences (Yap, Ineson, Tang, & Fong, 2015).
