Research background: Towards the end of the previous century the issue of management of diversity in organisations gained a prominent place in both academic and societal debates. For any multicultural country, such as the United States or Great Britain, the issue of diversity is not new. However, diversity has not been as frequently researched in the countries of the Visegrad region: the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
Purpose of the article: Using the data about 278 business organizations in Slovakia, we focus on the background of the implementation of diversity management from the point of view of factors having a direct influence on this process. We evaluate the influence of the legal form (as an expression of the number of owners and the ability to quickly adopt a new concept) of the business organisation, the size (number of employees) of the business organisation, the share of the foreign capital in the ownership structure of the organisations, the sector of economy the organization operates in, its performance and the existence of HR unit in the organizational structure.
Methods: To evaluate the influence of the selected factors linear modelling was used.
Findings & Value added: The study theoretically contributes to human resource management, talent management and organizational behaviour theories, and offers several policy implications for decision makers. Specifically, it deals with the relationship between the implementation of the diversity management selected organizations` characteristics.
Key words: workforce diversity / diversity management / implementation factors / organizational performance
