Summary/Abstract: The increased integration of global workforce from different countries of the multicultural world is a phenomenon which is lately observable in the labor market, i.e., people with different beliefs and backgrounds are interacting due to world’s rapid globalization. However, maintaining a positive workplace has been one of the essentials that companies work on to build their brand as an employer. Many articles have been written on diversity management, but little research has been done on global workforce diversity management. The aim of this article is to review recent literature, analyze publications in the field of diversity management, and to provide an insight into the challenges facing human resources management globally, with special focus on the Czech Republic. The paper provides a comprehensive review of quantitative, qualitative, and theoretical studies published in journals and selects articles that fulfill the desired criteria. In most companies, human resource management centers around effort to increase diversity and endorse inclusion. The target groups for diversity efforts differ according to the geographical region. Most countries, particularly in Europe and North America, insist mainly on retaining and promoting gender equality. These findings will benefit not only academicians but also managers and potential researchers, as they will be able to learn about the various aspects of global workforce diversity management.
