Hosts John Wedman and Elliott McClelland interview Dr. Tyrone Holmes on the topic of diversity training. According to the 2005 Workplace Diversity Practices study facilitated by the Society for Human Resource Management (Esen, 2005), two-thirds of surveyed organizations offered some type of diversity training for their employees. Unfortunately, this training does not always live up to expectations, especially when it comes to improving individual and organizational performance. One reason for this is that many organizations fail to take the steps needed before and after a training event to make sure educational content is transferred to the workplace in a way that significantly enhances performance. This chapter addresses this problem by introducing a three-phase Performance-Based Diversity Training Model that describes specific steps that must be taken before, during and after a diversity event to ensure it has a positive, measurable impact on employee performance.
