One of the biggest challenges facing modern organizations relates to talent management. This is felt acutely in managing the diversity of nationalities and cultures within an organization. An observation was made recently about the work culture at a French automotive supplier with bases in China, Japan and Germany. While a lot of Chinese employees had problems dealing with their German or French colleagues, contrary to perception, their biggest conflicts arose while dealing with the Japanese ones. The Chinese considered the Japanese and slow and inflexible, while the latter perceive the former as rash. While all human beings ultimately are motivated by similar psychological and physiological motivations, the upbringing matters a lot. That is why organizations must take care in mapping the cultural differences. This will help reduce the inherent fault lines, enabling the company to take advantage of the diversity.
