Anthony Ogomegbunam Odita, Solomon Egbule


The study is aimed at assessing the effects of workforce diversity on organizational effectiveness in Brewery industry using selected Breweries. Workplace diversity is a multidimensional and multi-faceted concept that will continue to evolve as more industries move toward the global marketplace. Survey research design method was employed, stratified sampling method as well as simple random sampling was used. Linear regression and correlation analysis was employed for the analytical purpose to review the nature of statistical significance among variables. The findings show that there is a significant positive relationship between the variables of workforce diversity and organizational effectiveness; in particular cultural diversity was found to be more effective, also Team building & group training-which mediates between workforce diversity and organizational effectiveness. The study concluded that any organization-whose leaders and policy makers are pragmatic, perspicacious and pertinacious, Team building & group training in line with good diversity management will act as panacea to the cankerworm of low employee performance that have set the bottom figure of most organizations balance sheet in bracket. We therefore recommend that for breweries to improve in innovation and creativity, managers and organizational leaders should ensure that diversity-related issues are well managed, and that breweries should create diversity managers in their companies, who are saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that organizational effectiveness is maintained.
