Attitudes towards workplace diversity research paper

The current study assessed the predictive validity of broad and narrow measures of personality, values, and cognitive ability on employee attitudes to workplace diversity.

Seven hundred and thirty-one Australian working adults completed the:

  • 200-item HEXACO Personality Inventory,
  • Schwartz’s Portrait Values Questionnaire,
  • ACER measures of numeric, verbal, and abstract reasoning ability,
  • the Attitudes Toward Diversity Scale, and
  • four scales measuring prejudice towards female workers, ethnic workers, older workers, and workers with a disability

Results showed that Honesty–Humility, Extraversion, Openness, and cognitive ability (especially verbal) predicted more positive attitudes to workplace diversity.

Valuing power, security, and tradition more, and valuing universalism less was associated with more negative attitudes to workplace diversity.
