Abstract

This paper amalgamates three inter-related presentations at the conference entitled “Diversity: a Practitioner’s Journey”. Papers addressed issues of employee well-being in the context of political and ethical concerns in the workplace and society at large. Dr Tim Freeman, who chaired the session, has edited a summary of these papers informed by his own research into leadership and the workplace. We start with spirituality and religion in the workplace (Dr Aylin Kunter), followed by workplace diversity (Dr Carlis Douglas) and finally, the ethics of employment deregulation (Dr Ian Roper).
We all have a desire to understand how we can make the workplace better for those who engage with – and rely on – it for their livelihoods and, increasingly, as a source of identity.
