Enhancing Supervisor and Subordinate Communication in Diversity Management

  • PN Mfene


The White Paper on Human Resource Management in the Public Sector, 1997,
provides for the institutionalisation of diversity management by integrating it with the organisation’s management practices. This article proposes that communication between supervisors and subordinates in the public service must be strengthened to enhance diversity management. It argues that diversity management is an appropriate approach that can be employed
by public managers (supervisors) to maximise the benefi ts of a diverse workforce in the public service, in which people with a variety of skills, languages, ages, physical abilities, cultures and gender are employed
