Abstract

Explores the strategy of managing workforce diversity as a possible response to skills shortages within the UK National Health Service. Stresses that, if health care organizations truly wish to harness the diversity of their workforce, ways must be found of understanding personal motivations and creating employment opportunities which, as far as it is reasonable, meet these needs and expectations. Emphasizes that failure to adopt such an approach could alienate, possibly permanently, sectors of the potential workforce.
