Differences between national cultures matter
Matej Tušar, Anja Žnidaršič, Gozdana Miglič, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Aims: Global business today usually requires organizations to be present locally in countries where their customers are. To do this successfully, good cooperation with local people is needed. Therefore, this paper focuses on the integration of cultures in the business world. The insights from this study are expected to benefit Slovenian expatriates to foreign companies in South Korea, as well as national culture researchers. The main goals of this research include a comparison of Hofstede’s IBM survey results with the researched working environment, and identifying the benefits of merging two national cultures for the working environment. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed to purposive samples within the researched working environments and the collected data analysed used SPSS, where the hypotheses were tested using a chi-square test and t-test for independent samples. Results: The results revealed significant differences between the two national cultures in the working environment, e.g.: fear of expressing disagreement towards superiors, commitment to work, preference of challenges, tendency to avoid conflicts and innovations - all differed according to nationality. Conclusion: Working together with people from different cultures requires a certain amount of adaptation (learning about another culture, expecting situations that are not usual). If this adaptation is successful, then cooperation between the different cultures can also be successful, leading to a potential output that is even better than cooperation between people from the same culture.

Interakcije med narodnimi kulturami - Primer slovensko - korejskega delovnega okolja
Matej Tušar, 2016, master's thesis/paper

Abstract: Današnji svet, predvsem poslovni, zahteva vedno več globalizacije. Koncern Kolektor je ravno tako globalno podjetje, ki je z lastnim znanjem, tehnologijo in proizvodnjo prisotno tudi v Južni Koreji, in kot tako na enem mestu zaposluje delavce dveh različnih kultur, slovenske in južnokorejske. Uspešna komunikacija in interakcija med temi ljudmi je ključnega pomena za uspeh in obstoj proizvodne lokacije. Kulture znajo namreč biti zelo različne, in kar v eni kulturi pomeni nekaj, ima lahko v drugi povsem nasprotni pomen. Niti večletno sodelovanje med pripadniki različnih kultur ni zagotovilo za uspeh, saj so razlike vedno prisotne. Zato je treba drugo kulturo razumeti in se prilagoditi. V nalogi raziskujemo različne vidike kultur in njihovo dojemanje posameznih situacij. Očitno je, da narodna kultura močno vpliva tudi na organizacijsko kulturo in da je tako podjetje uspešno voditi med medkulturnimi pastmi vse prej kot lahko, nikakor pa ne nemogoče. Negativne lastnosti je mogoče nevtralizirati, pozitivne lastnosti je mogoče združiti, inovativnost je mogoče nadgraditi. Le pristop mora biti pravi.
