Overcoming Biases Key to Building A Great, Diverse Team

Diversity in any organization is essential -- it is more than a moral imperative, writes Raj Gupta, retired Chairman/CEO of Fortune 300 company Rohm and Haasan, and currently serving on the boards of several companies including Hewlett-Packard.

Diversity is a business imperative based on increasing evidence that companies with diverse boards and leaders outperform their peers over time, according to him. In an article on the Harvard Business Review, he shares the following lessons with regards to building "exceptionally diverse, teams." Based on his personal experiences, he learned how to overcome "my own biases about diversity—and then using these hard-won insights to build one of the most diverse leadership teams and board of directors in the world:"
Your organization must strongly believe that diversity is critical for long-term success. - In order for a company to access the best possible talent they must access the broadest possible talent pool.
Understand that it takes two to tango and mere tokenism does not work. - Companies must assure an even playing field for every employee to realize their potential and contribute towards the success of the organization.
Expand the traditional notion of mentoring. -  The best mentoring comes from successful individuals who are perceived as mainstream in the organization. For example, a successful white male in a U.S. or a European company, a top Korean manager in a Korean company—they can assist a person of diverse background help gain insight into the culture of the organization and serve as a wise counsel.
Finally, building workforce diversity is a process; it is a journey the results of which "are not achieved instantaneously but require ongoing efforts including making a few bold decisions along the way."

Career Diversity in the Pharmacy Profession



There is a great deal of career diversity within the pharmacy profession, for pharmacist jobs have become more diverse, and several pharmacist jobs are no longer confined in pharmacies, hospital or clinical settings. Even in a hospital or clinical work environment, the work of pharmacists has expanded in scope.

As such, pharmacists these days are no longer expected to only “fill a prescription at a pharmacy,” and here are some career options for pharmacists:
*Hospital Pharmacy
Not only do pharmacists fill orders in a hospital, but many also have an active role in patient care alongside a physician. These pharmacists may participate in rounds and collaborate with physicians about the most appropriate treatment options for hospital residents. Some of the different hospitals or facilities in which pharmacists may work include long-term care and hospice facilities and psychiatric wards. Pharmacists may also play roles in the different departments within a general hospital.
 

*Ambulatory Care
Ambulatory care pharmacists typically work in clinics that provide patient care. A lot of these pharmacists participate in Coumadin clinic and make recommendations on Coumadin doses based on INR levels.
 

*Pharmacogenomics
Pharmacogenomics is the study of a patient's response to drug therapy based on that individual's genetic profile. There are some companies out there that have pharmacists making drug recommendations to physicians based on the pharmacogenetic profile of a patient's metabolizing enzymes. It's sort of like a pharmacogenetic medication therapy management.
 

*Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
There are many opportunities within this aspect of pharmacy. Retail pharmacies are now starting to offer this service. There are also companies that offer work-from-home opportunities. What's also unique about this particular side of pharmacy practice is the opportunity to create one's own MTM business.
 

*Pharmacovigilence
Drug safety--or the collection, monitoring, and prevention of adverse effects of medications and other pharmaceutical products--is an important issue and another avenue that pharmacists can take. Adverse drug reactions are often collected during clinical trials. -
See more at:

The job outlook for pharmacists is good, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook of the Bureau of Labor Statistics: Employment of pharmacists is projected to grow 14 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Increased demand for prescription medications will lead to more demand for pharmaceutical services. In addition, pharmacists must have a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), a 4-year professional degree. They also must be licensed, which requires passing two exams. In May 2012, the median annual wage for pharmacists was $116,670.

Strategy to Establish Effective Communication in Culturally Diverse Ambience from Christmas Onwards



Do you belong to a corporate environment that features employees of different cultural backgrounds and nationalities? Then we believe that their languages of communication, problem solving approaches and values will also be different from that of yours. This signifies that you have opted for the option of diversity jobs for establishing your professional career successfully.
However, while pursuing a prosperous career in this environment you should ensure that the richness of your culture as well as that of your coworkers is not at jeopardy. To be honest, any wrong step can wreck havoc to this distinctive organizational culture of yours. Therefore, we have presented some golden tips on establishing effective communication in your organization. You must follow these  tips right from this Christmas so that all your employs willingly participate in the Christmas merriment by forgetting their differences. Check them out. 
           



  •   Identify How Do the Employees Want Information

You will be overwhelmed to know that employees representing different cultural backgrounds have varying opinion about the source that delivers important corporate information to them. For instance, while an employee belonging to a specific culture will have more reliance on verbal information that he gets from the managers, another employee from a different cultural background might find information sent to him through the news and bulletin board  of the organization. Now, you might have planned to announce it officially that from Christmas onwards you will have a different corporate strategy  for acknowledging the positive outcome of cultural diversity jobs.  Then you have to identify a source that will have universal appeal to all the employees.
·          
  •    Provide Proper Training Right from the Beginning
In case you are a team leader of your concern, you will never be able to create harmonized corporate environment  if you overlook the importance of diversity training. In absence of proper training, your staffs will gradually develop misconceptions and selfish approaches towards each other. They will even develop prejudiced attitude towards all the corporate policies that the organization takes. At times, things might become so critical that they will tend to see biasness in the approach of the administration and the top level managers when they celebrate international festivals like Christmas and New Year within the office premises.  Thus, your project of making your teammates acknowledge the fruits of cultural diversity in the workplace can only prove successful when you train the teammates right from the beginning.
·           

  •  Supervise their Development
You should always remember that at the end of the diversity training what will actually count is how successful you have been in making your staffs respect each other’s cultures and develop sharing-caring relationship with each other.  Thus, you can only affirm that your employees will have better communication with each other  this Christmas onwards  if you gauge their development. Hence, simultaneous with providing them cultural diversity training in the workplace, you need to supervise the improvement each of them is showing. Creating several culturally heterogeneous sub-groups, providing universally applicable diversity training modules and assigning a mentor for each of the groups will help in streamlining the process. 

·          
  •   Refrain from using Culturally Distinctive Languages
Since you have taken the promise to establish effective inter-cultural communication in your culturally diverse working environment, you have to be careful about your approach. Never use colloquial language in the office that might appear unrecognizable for the non-national and culturally diverse employees. In nutshell, you must abstain yourself from using any sort of jargon or slang that  makes up get wrongly interpreted by your teammates as culturally biased. This is because such simple yet highly significant habits can lead to glass ceiling effect and stereotyping in the organization. As a result, your teammates will not participate with you in the project. Eventually, you will fail in establishing any sort of amicable communication amongst the culturally diverse employees for at least ten more Christmases in future.

Freelancing, The New Way to Work

Nowadays, opting for freelance jobs is the new way to work, and doing this is suitable for people who want more flexibility in their work hours.

By 2020, more than 40% of the US workforce will be so-called contingent workers, according to a study conducted by software company Intuit in 2010. We are quickly becoming a nation of permanent freelancers and temps. In 2006, the last time the federal government counted, the number of independent and contingent workers—contractors, temps, and the self-employed—stood at 42.6 million, or about 30% of the workforce. Read more here:

That was last year. Today, one report says, more than 53 million Americans are doing freelance work.

Another report says that while virtually any job in any industry can be a freelance job, there are some industries that are more freelance-friendly than others. Analysis of the data found that the top career categories for freelance jobs are education, entertainment, healthcare, graphic design, computer and IT, accounting and finance, translation, writing, web development, consulting, and sales and marketing. Read more here:

See this story of a university professor freelancing as a waitress after her teaching hours. She writes:
"In a city like Las Vegas, many customer-service jobs generate far more cash (with fewer work hours) than entry-level, office-dwelling, degree-requiring jobs. It can be hard to convince my 19-year-old students that the latter is more profitable or of greater personal value. My adjunct-teaching colleagues have large course loads and, mostly, graduate-level educations, but live just above the poverty line. In contrast, my part-time work in the Vegas service industry has produced three times more income than my university teaching. (I’ve passed up the health benefits that come with full-time teaching, a luxury foreign to the majority of adjuncts at other universities, to make time for my blue-collar work.)"

THE ENERGY BEHIND THE CULINARY CULTURE AT NESTLÉ PURINA


“Salmon, Egg & Pumpkin” and “Ocean Whitefish & Tuna” sound pretty delicious, right? These are the types of recipes Purina carefully formulates and develops for every breed and taste bud of every pet. They believe in feeding dogs and cats with the same care and delight as we, as humans, feed ourselves. Each can and bag is packed with pure passion and nutrition that nourishes the whole pet.
They credit their very own Chef Amanda for cultivating much of Purina’s diverse culinary culture to date. Her role within the Purina Family is particularly unique, as she creates human recipes and experiences with the intention of inspiring their people who are responsible for developing the pet food recipes that go to market.
“I want to make sure our pets are getting the full food experience that we humans get,” Chef Amanda said. “My goal is to bridge the gap between human food and pet food.”
Before joining the Purina Family, Chef Amanda spent nearly 20 years in the hospitality industry creating meals and recipes for people. When the opportunity to join manufacturing presented itself, she jumped at it knowing she would have the ability to have an enormous impact.
“After 13 years of working in human food manufacturing, the opportunity to work at Purina was irresistible, especially since Purina products are the ones that I buy for my family,” Amanda said.
Amanda openly expresses that Purina has truly become a place she is forever proud to call home. Her ability to instill a love for food and passion for pets into the intricate steps of developing recipes has made her job far more than a career; but a mission.
“I am very passionate about what I do here at Purina,” Amanda said. “After all, it combines two of my favorite things: food and pets. But the best part is that I am surrounded by people in all areas who are just as passionate about what they do and the products that we produce.”
As do many of the people who work at Purina, Chef Amanda also discovers her inspiration through the strength of the larger portfolio of brands and how well the company understands each different consumer and customer group. Amanda’s primary – and accepted – challenge is to transform life-appropriate, current food trends in a way that can translate to dogs and cats everywhere. And that’s the ‘meat’ of what makes her job her love.

Microsoft Commits Strongly to Diversity


Microsoft Corporation has long been known as an advocate of workplace diversity, and commits more strongly to it.

in his first shareholder meeting as chief executive of Microsoft Corp., Satya Nadella emphasized one message: Diversity matters. "We will make progress every year towards building a more diverse workforce and creating opportunities at every level of the company for all of Microsoft’s employees," Nadella said at the meeting, which was attended by several hundred shareholders and featured a cameo appearance from former CEO Steve Ballmer. Read more here:

At its annual shareholder’s meeting, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Chairman John Thompson fielded a series of questions from the Reverend Jesse Jackson concerning diversity inside the technology company...The set of queries gave Microsoft a chance to address how it approaches the issue. Nadella noted in his initial response that diversity was “core to everything” at his firm, and is “not something that [Microsoft does] on the side.” He followed that remark by directly committing to Jackson’s diversity data release requests, saying that they would be “done by the end of [the] month.” Read more here:

In a related news, Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition did a study on the racial and gender diversity makeup of 20 tech companies. According to the news, RPC then published a report which showed African-Americans, Latinos and women are severely underrepresented within these companies – accounting for 0-3 percent of their tech workforce. The study showed similar low diversity within the companies’ board of directors. The 20 companies have 189 board members – 153 men and 36 women – and just three companies, Microsoft, Oracle and Salesforce, have an African-American or Latino on their board. Read more:
