Cross-cultural Awareness and Understanding

Today’s workforce is growing increasingly diverse and at a rate that can be overwhelming. The diversity by its nature presents challenges for everyone in the workplace, be they management or staff. Understanding cultural differences is a two way street. However, diversity works when everyone understands and respects each other’s cultural proclivities. It is not possible to know intimately every different culture, however, the more one knows, the better the chances are to avoid workplace clashes.
