Abstract [sv]

Vi lever idag i en allt mer globaliserad värld, vilket bidragit till ett mångkulturellt samhälle. Dagens organisationer står i och med detta inför utmaningen att anpassa sig. Utmaningen med mångfald är, att trots skillnader, lyckas samarbeta. Genom samspel och god kommunikation formas människan in i den sociala miljön på arbetsplatsen. Denna studie undersöker medarbetarnas attityder till och upplevelse av sin organisations kulturella mångfaldsarbete. Undersökningen är en kvantitativ studie som utfördes med hjälp av enkäter. Studieobjektet är en specifik enhet inom en internationell organisation, som är starkt styrt av sina gemensamma värderingar. Huvudresultatet visar på hög trivsel och en positiv attityd till att arbeta med mångfald, att mångfaldsplanen upplevs som bra och att medarbetarna uppskattar att arbeta i mångkulturella team.
