Gender Diversity Management Practices in Hotel Industry: The Case of Thailand
The objective of this study was to investigate gender diversity management practices (DMPs) in the hotel
industry and the impact of gender on the hotel employees‟ perception toward the gender diversity management practices.
The results showed that the majority of hotel employees were female and young generation. Most hotels have conducted
gender diversity management practices effectively therefore both male and female hotel employees can recognize that their
hotels tried to provide equal opportunity in recruitment, selection, training and development, promotion, and compensation
to male and female employees. The results of the study also found that the approach that hotel companies used to help their
employees balance their work and family life may hinder rather than supporting gender equality.
