Project #83025 - Memo writing 300 to 400 words

In this course you are learning to become an effective worker in a globalised world. Most of us are familiar with a particular culture (for example, Australian or Indian). This could be your native culture (where you grew up) or where you currently live and work. You should understand about its patterns and ways of doing things (possibly related to doing ICT related work). Imagine you are working in an organisation based in this particular culture and you have been asked to mentor a new staff member who has just entered the country. Think about how you would explain your culture to that new staff member. How should they behave in that cultural environment, and establish with them some boundaries around when flexibility is required, and when a matter needs to be referred back to the organisation (for example, the issue of giving personal gifts to business colleagues in some cultures). To get ideas talk to people from other cultures about what they have learned when living and working in different countries. 

 

Requirements

Write a memo giving advice to that new staff member about how to engage in negotiations with a particular cultural group. Provide at least three key points that the new staff member should be aware of when working in your culture. For example, are there culturally acceptable ways to greet people to avoid offending them? Are there conventions around who is allowed to speak at meetings? Are there foods to be avoided? Is there particular clothing that needs to be worn? Are there ethical codes to follow? Provide an example for each point you make. Make sure that you include in your memo the name of the culture you are explaining, for example, Nepalese culture.
