Dr. R. Durga Prasad
Abstract: Diversity management is a young management discipline which originated out of many different historical and social issues. (Leopold and Harris 2009) posit that diversity management literature reveals the absence of a universally accepted definition of the term, managing diversity. Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa, commonly known as the Horn of Africa. It is at the cross-roads between Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Ethiopia is a multi-ethnic country with many indigenous languages. Ethiopians are appreciated towards warm greetings, handshakes, positive body language (smile or showing a sign of happiness) and a show of respect. The study will use different types of sampling techniques to select respondents from the purposively selected three zonal towns of the region and its capital city, such as systematic random sampling to select respondents from selected banks after proportionate sampling technique is used to determine sample size of each town. Moreover, data will be gathered through simple Random sampling method. Those selected banks under this study are both public and private banks in tigray region respectively like Commercial Bank of Ethiopia, Dashen Bank, Awash Bank, Wegagen Bank and Ambesa bank. In this study, we seek to extend the existing research on workplace diversity by conceptualizing and empirically examining the effects of different variables effectiveness on organizational and employee performance with the working environments of workgroups in exploring the impact of workplace diversity on organizational effectiveness.
