Abstract

Delving into the psychological experiences of ethnic identity in the workplace, editors Tinu Cornish and Thomas Calvard present a comprehensive, evidence-based analysis of the continued under-representation of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals within the employment practices and management structures of UK companies. With contributions from a wide range of working professionals and academics, this book showcases a breadth of insightful case studies and considers the role of diversity in enhancing organisational performance, the effects of discrimination and bias in hiring practices, as well as methods for improving the experiences of BAME employees.

An invaluable guide to progressive organisational management and an essential supplementary learning resource for those studying human resource management (HRM), organisational behaviour (OB), and psychology, as well as management and leadership courses and HR professionals desiring to make strategic hiring practices.
