Abstract: Employee diversity, when effectively managed, can fuel employees to add value to the organization. Our primary research aim entails the investigation into how diversity-oriented HR practices that address and value employee diversity contribute to employee work engagement. Employees and their managers from diverse manufacturing industries in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam participated as providers of the data for the current research. Our data analysis supported the positive relationship between diversity-oriented HR practices and work engagement among employees. The role of diversity climate as a mediator for this relationship was also substantiated. Besides, the results provided evidence for the moderating roles of diversity-oriented leadership as well as group diversity in our research model.
