Education Seminar | CULTURE CODE

Culture-Code-Abstract.jpg

Global organizations that design and manage their work environments to respect cultural values often realize substantial benefits - attracting and retaining talent, allowing distributed teams to be more productive, promoting employee well being, and much more. As global businesses seek to implement a workplace strategy, their offices have become stages for playing out cultural differences. Many organizations try to export the same workplace strategy that worked at home, without always considering how those spaces will be perceived within a different culture. In response to this challenge, the Steelcase WorkSpace Futures team recently completed a study of 11 countries to better understand culture codes in the workplace. Their insights can help organizations incorporate important values, employee behavioys and larger cultural contexts into work environments that work around the world.   AIA Learning Units 1.0 HSW
