Divisions or diversity? Why Employers Should Accept That They Have a Key Role to Play in Promoting Consensus and Avoiding Interracial Strife

Recent events in France and Germany illustrate how readily the prejudicial attitudes of even a few extreme and violent individuals can paralyze society. But is prejudice increasing in the general population and how can it be tackled? The Secretary-General of The Federation of European Employers (FedEE) writes....

According to Robin Chater, the Secretary-General of the Federation of European Employers (FedEE)

"Employers have a pivotal role in encouraging religious and ethnic harmony throughout society. Unless more is done to encourage racial and religious toleration through training, education and social interaction prejudice will grow and all western societies will be incurably destabilized"

The workplace is one of the principal places where people meet others from different ethnic and religious backgrounds. In a recent survey by the Department for Communities and Local Government (2012) it was found that 54% of the population mixed in this way through "work, school or college".

UK employers currently face a 11% - 15%% chance of facing a discrimination claim before an employment tribunal during the next five years.... And by 2025 this is projected by FedEE to grow to a 23% - 32% chance - with over 50% of claims being for racial discrimination.

The typical costs - in management time and legal costs - of fighting a discrimination claim that is lost by the claimant or withdrawn before a hearing is £14,000. If the claimant wins their case the costs will rise to over £30,000, in addition to the stress placed on participants and damage to a company's reputation.

In Robin Chater's view "the extension of the period from next month to two years before new employees in the UK qualify for full employment protection will encourage more employees to make discrimination and harassment claims when they are dismissed after a short period of service".

So why do less than 5% of UK employers take steps to train their workforces to understand even the legal pitfalls of discrimination - let alone the broader task of improving racial tolerance?

Some facts

18.3% of the population in England and Wales are now from a nonwhite ethnic minority group (NWEMG). This is set to increase to 27.5% by 2025.

The current concentration of the NWEMG in Greater London and along the M1/M6 corridor will disappear over the next 10-15 years and discrimination levels are likely to rise as the nonwhite population seek work in regions where traditional prejudicial attitudes remain strong.

Currently those from a Pakistani or Bangladeshi origins are 28% less likely to secure work than the population as a whole.

Recent Events

Three months ago the UK government established a new Equality Advisory and Support Service to help people make discrimination claims.

Employers now also have a better way to get across the message. The Federation of European Employers (FedEE) has produced a new training film in collaboration with the TUC and ACAS . "Without Prejudice" is a sensitive and moving drama illustrating how prejudice can arise in the workplace through a succession of seemingly harmless remarks and actions - and end up in a tribunal.






The next step

The Federation of European Employers (FedEE) will shortly be launching an initiative that will encourage employers to celebrate ethnic and religious diversity. FedEE is drawing together examples of all the best practices currently followed by employers across Europe and producing a range of media, materials and case studies that can be used in training days, intercultural events, inhouse journals and support for activities in the broader community.

Afterword

Ethnic tensions are growing around the world and Europe is not immune to the upheavals. In fact, as racial minorities grow in significance attitudes are likely to harden amongst certain sections of the traditionally dominant ethnic group. The competition for common wants such as jobs, houses, consumer goods and other objects of status will increasingly be perceived as between "them" and "us" rather than between individuals ...and racial stereotyping will provide the rational for seeing the other group(s) as inferior.

And this just happened by chance. Why was it so important to import unemployable Pakistanis, Arabs, Somalis etc. They are not just unemployable but carry within them a culture that is totally hostile to the West.

The way forward is to get these people to a culture that is amenable to them, and a chance of employment in their own countries.

They know what is happening, they are trying to manage the consequences in order to insure some stability for businesses, but not to fix the situation.
They sound like extraterrestrials discussing how to manage Earth's ethnic groups. They think they are post-nationals and are above everything else. This type of thinking is common in today's universities and also among the ultra-rich. It also sounds as if they cannot understand why ethnic tensions in the world are increasing.

What elites don't understand is that they are the children of certain group, and of certain civilization. If this civilization disappears, they will disappear too. For example, in Islamic Civilization it is not the capitalists that are in charge. Actually capitalism never managed to properly develop in Islamic countries, the power there was always in the hands of either the religious or the army.

Only Christians are allowed to be treated as outcasts and lepers as we've seen with our councils, BA etc.

l wont employ foreigners. Many of the foreigners are right up to speed as far as their "rights" are concerned so one must be very careful. Often being aware of their "rights" is just about all theyre good at.
They believe it is their "right" to ethnically cleanse the White countries, all "rights" flow from that one overiding imperative or "first right". lf one doesnt accept the White genocide one is duty bound to lawfully reject these governments (and the UN's and EU's) fascist decrees.
They dont like White children.

This is not going to end well for anyone. Why are our 'leaders' so stupid?

Our leaders arent stupid, our leaders are cultural marxist elitists on a mission - blend the Whites out of existence.
Anyone who questions the marxist one world agenda is branded a racist and dealt with.
Welcome to the fascist new age, gather round ye White serfs and listen attentively to your one worlder cultural marxist bosses. Do not question!
