Examine the anticipated population characteristics for this organization with regards to age

Examine the anticipated population characteristics for this organization with regards to age, ethnicity, gender, lifestyle, and language. What impact may these considerations have on communication inside and beyond the organization? A complaint was filed against American Medical Response Ambulance (AMR) by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) about a pregnant paramedic. The lawsuit requested that AMR make adjustments to her work responsibilities. She was in the last trimester of her pregnancy and had a medical certificate supporting her condition. AMR rejected the proposal and advised her to either take unpaid vacation or continue working without any limitations. AMR displayed discriminatory behavior against its employee due to her pregnancy, as she requested a reduction in employment responsibilities for the well-being of her unborn child and herself. Illustrate instances of cultural dilemmas that may emerge within this organization. Take into account, for instance, workers whose cultural holidays do not coincide with those specified in the business calendar. Offer further examples and suggest tactics for administrators to maintain cultural impartiality. Based on their behavior about the employee's pregnancy, it seems that this Company is governed by a culture that is characterized by masculinity and dominance. For instance, pregnancy should not have any impact on your employment and it should be seen as a secondary consideration. Regrettably, this mindset may not be well received by a society that prioritizes feminine values, such as family, children, and quality of life. According to the aforementioned reasoning, AMR may well have a problem with an employee from a diverse culture who want to take leave for religious purposes. The allocation of holiday time in our society is mostly based on the Christian calendar. Individuals from various cultural backgrounds may not want these days off, since they do not align with their own religious holidays. Given that this is an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) organization, it is likely that the staff are required to work on
holidays and weekends, therefore this may not be a significant concern. If this were a business entity, it could pose a somewhat more concern to an individual from our cultural background. Companies are now exploring alternative approaches to accommodate individuals with diverse religious beliefs by allowing them to observe their respective religious holidays while working on the corporation's designated non-religious holidays. On pages 152-153 In "Managing Diversity at Workplace" (2019), Sharma discusses the use of Flexible Yearly Periods as a strategy to effectively manage a culturally varied workforce. Western culture's establishment of public holidays allows individuals from other cultures to work on those specific days and take time off on the days that have significance in their own cultural traditions. This concept offers employees the opportunity to request time off for a holiday of their preference. Nevertheless, certain challenges may arise, such as insufficient workload due to the absence of other employees, restricted access to buildings, inadequate supervision, and complexities related to payment.
