GOOD that is the world is need to help each other

When we talk of the diversity in team work I think that is important because from point of view business is necessary have people aligned for achieve of goal, and for this the ideas and opinions of the all can be complementary.

In my opinion it's very important to have diversity in all the type of groups because it will help you to have new ideas, new ways to think, learn about other countries, cultures or religions.
No matter which are your thoughts or your way of life, you have to respect others thoughts and ways of life.
I believe that the best way to do it it's sharing time with many different types of persons and learning how to work with them.

Diversity is the role of the life ,
we should learn from different culture different prospective which may lead to more success in the organization ..

I had a diverse workplace when I worked on ship. We got people from different countries like Russia, Ukraine, China, Philippine and so on. We had different ideas and ways in solving problems. It was fun. But not every times, we had a problem such a pronunciation when we talking. We used to talk about our traditions, ways of living and so on.

The harmony in the work group can be created by making the most of each person's skills and therefore the differences of thought and opinions, which must be verified and accepted from time to time, if they contribute to solving problems and achieving objectives

Diversity = New ideas!

In these days, we are connected with a lot of people from different areas of the world. You can know people from other countries even other areas of your birth country. Is important that we are aware about it. No matter how are your thought or your way of life, you have to respect others thought and ways of life.
We have got a diverse team. We are from different countries and different kind of people. There are males, females, old and young people. It's funny in christmas when we share our traditions.

The Importence Of Diversity

Racism has been the reason for a lot of wars and conflicts in the world for years. During these wars, people killed others who had different colours, ideas, and religions. Why?
Why couldn't we learn how to live together? I don’t understand why we don’t accept that people have different colours, religions and ideas .
But nowadays a lot of companies in the world have many staff are from different countries, religions, ideas etc.
These companies try to prevent conflicts among their own staff by arranging seminars, common holidays and cocktails. Diversity of religions, colours and ideas are not important as much as old times for modern day people. That’s a good development.
I think that making common activities like that help to improve friendship and solidarity among staff.

I had a diverse workplace when I attended to the internship period. There were people with different beliefs, ideas and perspectives. Fortunately, we had weekly meetings so as to define the activities and new solutions to problems, according to each category and the people's role. The diversity helped our team by doing some researches, plans and reports more effectively and quickly, since it increased new ways of doing them.
