ABSTRACT
The article deals with a study that investigated the extent to which work-life balance programs affected ethnic and gender diversity. The Workplace Employment Relations Surveys (WERS) suggest that between 1998 and 2004 the proportion of non-white people in the British labour force increased by two percentage points to 10 percent, while the proportion of female employees rose from 46 percent to 52 percent. However, there was some association between companies experiencing a merger or acquisition and reduction in the proportions of ethnic minorities.
