    I count 8 in your list, not 5.

    Your paragraph is filled with generalizations and current buzzwords/phrases. I hope all of them are understandable by others as well as you. It's not clear they are, though, because they are all so vague and cliche-ish.

    The last sentence is especially vague:
    It is vital also because of market globalization and workforce diversity.
    What is "it"?

    How does "market globalization" affect YOU INDIVIDUALLY?

    What does "workforce diversity" mean to YOU INDIVIDUALLY?
