Abstract

This work aims to present the phenomenon of managing diversity in the company and learning the key benefits of this topic. Another important aspect of this study was to learn about the impact of the cultural ethnicity of managers working in the small retail chain, where the survey was conducted using a questionnaire. During the research, the quantitative method was used, two types of questionnaires were distributed among employees, and separate for managers. Various studies have been conducted around the world to investigate this topic, but not much has been done in Ireland itself. The researcher wanted to get familiar with the topic and the fact that he was a member of one of the shops, he could thoroughly analyse how diversity is perceived in the workplace and how it can affect the choice of management style. Also, a researcher could analyse the impact of manager cultural ethnicity on management style used in a diverse workforce.

The cultural diversity may be an essential factor when it comes to the issue of management, so the purpose of this paper is to find out the results of the penetration of national cultures in organisational culture. The issue of cultural diversity is an essential area of the management. The literature and research explorations provide examples of many problems and conflicts in the background, which reduces the effectiveness of their work and a disintegrating effect on the other members of culturally diverse teams.

Organisational culture is the key to understanding the essence of management processes, as the concepts and practices of management created within a company cannot be unreflectively copied and successfully applied elsewhere.
