Employees are different in many ways, including gender, age, functional background, personality, and so on and diversity is inevitable at work. Previous research, mainly based on the West, has told us that the more diverse a team, the more creativity it brings to the company. However, diversity is perceived differently in the West and the East. What does diversity mean to Chinese companies, and what management could do to manage diversity and bring out the best from diverse teams? Supported by her research, Prof. Dora Lau of CUHK Business School will share her insights on the modern definition of diversity and how it relates to team performance and success of a company.

How do you motivate and manage the young generation of post-80s and post-90s who makes up ninety percent of your employee population? How do you empower your staff of different age groups, whether from mainland or Hong Kong, to work together to achieve the best performance? Mr. Alan Yip, Chairman and CEO of Guru Online, will share with us how he does it in his company and how diversity drives better results.
