Look at Your Religious Diversity
If your company is like mine, you probably employ people from all religious beliefs; all with different traditions and customs. In New Mexico at my car dealership, I have Native Americans, Hispanics, Catholics, Protestants, Jewish, and Mormon faiths.
In most employee handbooks that set the paid holidays, Christmas is almost always a paid holiday--but what if you have employees who are Jewish or those of the Buddhist or Mormon faith? What about Native American holidays that occur throughout the year and require that certain apparel is worn along with time off?
While you can’t allow week after week of paid time off, there are some things you can do to help deal with religion in the work environment.
Religion in the work environment doesn’t consist of just days off, either. Certain religions seem to clash and so can co-workers who have different beliefs. Below are some tips on how to deal with your religious diversity so everyone is at ease.
