In the face of rapid changes, modern organizations must be ready for the development of technology and changes related to the globalization process in the world. The result of these changes is a shift from managing monocultural organizations to managing multicultural organizations. Migration processes are the cause of the growth of cultural diversity in enterprises. It is the result of aging societies as well as changes in corporate structures. Diversity also means division according to sex, age, skin color, etc. It can also refer to physical and mental abilities as well as religion. The introduction of the concept of diversity management is a requirement of the modern world. Especially with regard to human resource management and the accompanying social and economic processes. This is a requirement of the modern world. Currently, the market forces organizations to be open. Enterprises should create such working conditions that each employee celebrates the comfort of fulfilling professional duties. So that he can develop his potential. Managing diversity should be characterized by actual care for the employees of the organization because they are the source of its success. Enterprises operating in the conditions of constant changes should react and verify strategic goals in order not only to survive but also constantly develop. Moreover, they must implement innovations in all areas of their activity. It is extremely important to adapt the organizational structure to the current market situation. It is also important to understand diversity in the conditions of the enterprise. If it is properly managed, it should bring benefits to the organization. It is important to take into account the requirements and needs of both employees and customers. These activities should become a norm or even a standard in order to build a competitive advantage of an organization.
