Consider the following list of ‘unspoken’ rules for the workplace as compiled by Ashia Gallo (2017):
Do not discuss your pay.
Do not date colleagues.
Do not use technology, personal or work devices, for personal use.
Do not show up repeatedly late to work.
Do not talk about religion, politics or other controversial topics.
Do not steal office supplies.
Do you think that this list applies to every workplace? Is it possible that the culture of a workplace or organization might change some of the items on this list to being acceptable? It is likely that many companies would add items to the list of rules and make these rules clear and not ‘unspoken’ as the author suggests. While organizations do their best to create policies and guidelines to promote a safe work environment, many companies create and institute policies which promote diversity and cultural awareness.
In addition to setting rules about what is acceptable and ethical behavior for interactions among employees of diverse backgrounds, companies can increase awareness of cultural differences by celebrating diversity and cultures, researching the communication norms of the different cultures, and taking the time to value diversity through education (Ahmed, 2020). Acknowledging and addressing culture problems and finding ways to reconcile the sometimes-subtle differences can lead to improved productivity and communication (Landry, 2018). According to Lamson (2018), building cultural competency in business, while a continuous process that is response and fluid in nature, “builds one of the most valuable assets your organization will have”.
In this Discussion, you will explore global cultural intelligence and the importance of addressing cultural awareness on a global scale in business. You will discuss several ways organizations can build global cultural awareness and provide a remedy for common cultural misunderstandings.
