Religious Diversity at Work provides a much-needed perspective of a fundamental, but often over-looked, aspect of today’s healthcare industry. It’s a guide to navigating religious sensitivities and instituting healthcare measures to address religious diversity concerns. Religion encourages us to live the way we say we believe. That premise doesn’t stop at the doors of a hospital, behavioral healthcare facility, emergency transport, or medical provider’s office. Religious diversity awareness should be used to proactively provide equal care by equal practice. Thank you for tackling these issues in ways not generally featured in other references.”
~ Sam Verniero, Planning Commission Board Member at Georgia Dept. of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities

“The book is not only informative, but also thought provoking by asking questions managers and HR professionals will face in our ever evolving work cultures. Religious Diversity at Work allows management to formulate a plan and communication strategies before a disaster!”
Melodie Thompson, PHR, SHRM-CP

Religion in the US Workplace is a surprising combination of serious workplace issues and enjoyable articles that treat them in a plain and commonsensical way. While the book is rich with information, it is highly accessible to the average reader. It may even make the reader’s workplace experience much more enjoyable and successful. In addition to the articles, the book includes hypothetical examples and exercises that force the reader to think through the advice and absorb the information provided in the book. It is a great handbook that everyone embarking on a career should read in order to avoid some of the rough bumps we sometime experience in our religiously diverse society. I am surprised that it has taken so long for such a necessary and informative book to be written.”
