ZULU, Pascal S.  e  PARUMASUR, Sanjana B.. Employee perceptions of the management of cultural diversity and workplace transformation. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp.49-57. ISSN 2071-0763.

This study assesses managerial perceptions of the management of cultural diversity and workplace transformation in three production companies in Gauteng. A sample comprising 668 employees was drawn from a population of 1 259 (53% response rate) using simple random sampling and data were collected through self-developed questionnaires and personal interviews. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results indicate that whilst the South African Transformation (SAT) Agenda has propelled change in the political and economic spheres, similar developments have not been realised in the South African labour market. Hence, based on the findings, recommendations are made to enhance the management of cultural diversity and workplace transformation, and the need for urgent government intervention, through legislative amendments, is emphasised.

Palavras-chave : cultural diversity; change management in the workplace; South African Transformation Agenda; Employment Equity Act, No. 55 of 1998; perception of employees.
