The structure of the workplace around the world has changed. Multinational workforces need to be taken into consideration by organisations, including those in Ireland. The aim of this research is to examine the relationship between job satisfaction and stress, job demands, coping strategies, team work and quality of life, taking into consideration the diversity of the workplace. The quantitative design was applied, with a survey sent out to two multinational companies, with 114 participants (N=114) completing the survey. The results confirmed that there is a significant relationship between diversity and job satisfaction and that diversity moderates relationship between stress and job satisfaction. The findings are discussed in the context of emerging literature on diversity within the organisational psychology.
