Migration is forming a new challenge for governmental and labor markets. The effect on workforce diversity and competiveness is considered crucial consequence of internal and external migration. The objective of this research is to investigate the effect of migration on workforce diversity in Jordan. The results showed that the external immigration to Jordan due to crisis is controlled to great extent by government. Moreover, the regulation of government of this workforce minimize its effect on local workforce market. Invisible and out of control effect resulted of local migration, which increased in the last years due to high opportunities in some governorate and the concentration of commercials in these areas. Such migration is not controlled and requires the collection of more figures, as well as deep investigation on workforce diversity.
