Diverse practices in business culture

DIVERSITY Number] The term globalization emerged when the trade trends of the world changed. The expansion of business production created the global business ethics, which turned into business culture throughout the world and hence, decreased diversity of cultures. However, diversity in business practices enables fruitful outcome if human needs and interests are kept in mind while implementing them.
The example of company like GE enlightens the story of success through their diverse practise in different cultures. On the other hand, the most successful chain of stores Wal-Mart’s downfall in Germany informs, how inappropriate diverse practises can transform the expected results.
The criterion to use diverse practices is successful only when a firm is able to ascertain in what context they would be beneficial for them. The cross-cultural training has been given to students so they can understand the differences among cultures and hence, can adapt global business practices acceptable for all.
Hofstede’s framework of cultural dimensions in workplace has been considered the most adequate system to ascertain, what kind of diverse practices would work in a specific region and how can a foreign company can sustain in a different culture without conflicting with their diverse cultural values. Hence, modernization and convergence has already affected the diversity among different cultures, with the domination of western capitalists the culture at workplace is considered as a universal culture.
Nevertheless, one needs to learn in what amount diversity would be acceptable in conflict to the national culture. Since national culture directly influences job performance therefore, its affects can increase and decrease according to the nature of job. Consequently, cultural norms if taken into consideration while formulating workplace norms results in fruitful outcomes. Afterwards, diversity does not become a cause of emotional turmoil instead it becomes acceptable even in diverse cultures without resistance (Taras et al., p189-198).
