My subject on today’s matter is diversity in the workplace. I always thought the word ‘diversity’ was bad in the workplace until I ran into an article called, “The state of Diversity in Today’s Workforce.” Which states that diversity is the greatest thing that has happened to the workforce. It picks out the best candidates for the job by showing the individuals skills needed for the right job. It also gives more drive for the individual to work harder and better for the company. It has helped grow the economy as more diverse character numbers grow into the workforce. This article really has helped me understand more about diversity that I didn’t know before, and I believe this was the perfect subject for me to write about for my discussion.

Workplace diversity is the differences between individuals in an organization. Diversity is not only how a person sees themselves but how others see them.

It is important that offenders have a variety of employment opportunities available in the community so they can find one that they enjoy and find fulfillment. Many career theorists have proven that one’s employment affects their overall happiness. John Holland theorized that people have specific interests and that they could be measured, this measurement is called a Holland Code (National Career Development Association, 2014, pg 1-5). Furthermore, careers have elements that can be measured and matched to one’s interests. If one chooses a career outside of their interests, they have a high probability of being dissatisfied, unhappy, and inefficient. When one chooses a career within their interests, they find a sense of purpose that leads to long-term happiness and productivity. In fact, according to the Indiana Department of Corrections, in 2017, offenders that were placed in work release programs to prioritize work, were 37.8% less likely to recidivate compared to those who did not participate (Indiana Department of Corrections, 2017). However, administering an assessment to determine an offender’s Holland Code does not guarantee that that job field has available positions in the area. For an offender, the likelihood of having many options to explore their interests is very low. Due to a stigma and fear of criminal activity, many employers do not hire one with a criminal background. Offenders don’t often get a chance to illustrate job skills acquired through programming and practice life skills such as budgeting when there are barriers to employment in their community. The stigma affects offenders’ job opportunities but it also affects social support.
