Of course, these issues are at the top of mind of many HR or human resources departments in all types of organizations. Companies are scrambling to make sure that they hiring practices are politically correct. However, sometimes this can backfire on organizations when the main hiring factor in recruitment is ethnicity rather than actual qualifications of candidates for positions.
