Business Report


As a Human Resources manager for your company, the Director of HR has asked you to be part of a new project tasked to the department, creating a diversity scorecard. The scorecard will be the focal point to many new diversity projects for the future. The director has asked you to provide some research in a business report that will be used to create the diversity scorecard.

You will need to choose and research one of the following publicly-traded companies and create a business report of your findings based on the given tasks below. Note that you are not creating a diversity scorecard.


First, choose one of the following companies:

  • AT&T
  • Toyota Motor
  • Apple
  • Berkshire Hathaway
  • Exxon Mobil

Next, develop a business report that:

  • Provides an overview of the company, including a brief history, their mission, and their current cultural make-up.
  • Note: cultural information can be found on company websites in the “About,” “Our Company,” or “Values” area on the company homepage.
  • Examines the role of identity and how it may create challenges or opportunities for the company.
  • Assesses the importance of diverse segments within the company workforce
  • Describes different cultural backgrounds’ impact on a company’s success.
  • Identifies the ways in which creating more diversity at this company can create a long-term impact for the company.
  • Be sure the business report displays proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and credible sources cited in APA format.
