This study sought to assess the extent to which organizations in the manufacturing industry were using diversity practices when performing their Human Resources functions. The study also assessed the perceived challenges and benefits of diversity in the workforce. The findings of this study indicated that, with the exception of "remuneration," the extent of adoption of diversity management practices in Australia is only "average." The data indicated that Australian managers do not consider workforce diversity to be a major challenge nor do they believe that it provides significant benefits to the organization. The significance of these findings is discussed.
