This type of research involves use of quantified data that is collected with help og surveys, interviewer or questionnaire (Fejerskov, 2017).

In vase of primary research, information is collected first  time and is more authentic and relevant at same time. Reason behind this is data is not extracted from a already exiting sources that increase its level of reliability and authenticity.

In the present research there is use of primary research and information is gathered through questionnaire. There are 50 respondents that have been considered by researcher for  the purpose of collected information. 

Secondary Research:

This is a research method where data is collected with help of journals, websites, newspaper, online availability of applications, government publication and etc. it is less reliable source as compared to primary method of collecting data as it is taken form a exiting source and there is no first hand information that is being used (Antoniades, 2016).

There is use of both primary & secondary approach of collecting data. In primary research questionnaire is considered for the purpose of collecting data and in secondary sources, online available sources have been used for collecting of information.

Reflection

While performing above research it is observed that there are some factors that created difficulty in completion of overall research. Such as convening employees to provide a unbiased reviews to some of questions was very difficult and a long procedure. On other hand, there was lack of time as sample area was quiet large.

Part from this I also believe that this research has helped me a lot in enhancement of my knowledge and increasing my communication skills.

From above report is concluded that equality and diversity practises are very helpful for every organisations. Especially these practises and policies posses a very critical impact on employees daily activities at workplace. Managers in organisations should make attempts to make suer that all employees are given equal treatment in terms of fair wages, promotions, equal opportunities for growth etc. all such initiates will help in creation of a satisfied workforce, positive brand image in market, increasing productivity and employee contribution in achievement of overall laid objectives.
