Diversity management is an important and yet still unexplored phenomenon in our modern world. Number of researchers have examined this phenomenon in different studies, finding out the advantages and disadvantages that diverse workforce bring into the workplace. However, there is no one agreed upon opinion, whether diversity should be encouraged or avoided. Consequently, this study is designed to examine the existence (and the extent of the existence) of the relationships between ethnic diversity, therefore cultural differences, and employees perceived social inclusion to the work place. Moreover, the relationships between the social inclusion and job satisfaction and psychological employees well - being have been examined and analyzed as well. A quantitative survey approach has been used and the sample of 106 employees of diverse working positions, within the International Hotel Chains of Stavanger, Norway have been collected and evaluated. Consequently, no empirical evidence supporting the hypothesis that the relationship between the cultural differences employees experience and perceived social inclusion have been identified. However, the relationships between the perceived social inclusion and employees general well – being have been confirmed. In addition, the speculations about the results and limitations of the study have been identified and discussed.
