Statement of the purpose. One of the objectives of this dissertation is to show how cultural capabilities and idiosyncrasies neutralize growth and opportunities in business. For instance, because of acute recession in the United States of America and in order to save big on wages and other payroll costs, American companies outsource jobs to countries like India and those in Asia where salaries are significantly lower. Such is the case in call centres where telemarketing and other allied on-line services are rendered. It is admitted that oral English communications skills are the only required credentials for call specialists. In this field, other cultures can compete with their counterparts in the larger economies thus leveraging business in the global scene. The levelling of business particularly comes from taxes on the earnings of the employees which go to the host country rather than the territory which is outsourcing the services. The same is true with the circulation of money generated by the outsourced business. Another example where cultural competency sets in is in the car industry. While the world economy hits low levels, people in third world countries tend more to settle for reconditioned used cars rather than buy brand new ones from companies controlled by corporations with main offices based in affluent nations. Circumstances like this become balancing factors in international business and commerce. In short, owning a second-hand automobile is a readily acceptable cultural notion in poor countries while it may not be so much in highly developed nations. On the other side, there are products made by people from impoverished territories which fascinate rich Western nationals and this kind of exchange likewise levels the trade playing field. Such products include furniture made of rare wood or indigenous materials and tiny handicrafts being worn as beauty accessories. These are among the factors to consider in presenting a study on how cultural competency leverage business. In the case of diversity in the global economy, the research will inquire into non-traditional resources and approaches. One good illustration is the source of fuel or energy which has always been mineral fossil oil or petroleum. This circumstance has a very ...Download file to see next pagesRead More

Cultural Competency and Diversity

...? Cultural competency Nurses need to understand their own worldviews and those of the patients and avoid stereotypes and misapplication of scientific knowledge in order to be culturally competent. Cultural competence among the nurses refers to the extraction of information from a certain source and the application of that knowledge professionally (ACE, 2011). In nursing, cultural competence allows one to see the entire picture of the quality care and health outcomes. Cultural competency programs entail evaluation, continuous adaptation and reevaluation of the way things occur. Cultural diversity in nursing tests the ability of the individual to care truly about the patients, demonstrate clinical proficiency and show cultural competence...

...Running head: Leveraging Diversity Leveraging Diversity Leveraging Diversity Introduction Steve Forbes (1999) said, "The real source of wealth and capital in this new era is not material thingsit is the human mind, the human spirit, the human imagination, and our faith in the future."

Cultural Competency

...Cultural competency can broadly be defined as the desire to understand cross cultural values and adapt to the changing societal pattern of globalization. It becomes a highly critical paradigm in the area of education as it significantly impacts the development of students and their attitude towards different race, culture, religion and nationality. In the present context, the community school is faced with huge challenges when children from 30 immigrant families, majority of who do not speak English, are admitted in the new session. Dr. Guanipa (1998) has described cultural shock as the ‘physical and emotional discomfort’ one suffers when one goes to another country to live. The paper would primarily discuss the ways and means the school...

Instead, no matter how business works, it all has to do with working cross-culturally and dealing with people who may have different ethics than those of Americans.

Cultural competency in nursing

...Nursing Nursing Cultural competence depicts the ability of nurses to posses the skills, attitudes and knowledge, which enables them in delivering quality care to individuals across different cultures and languages. Such is vital since culture does not only influence health practices in different settings, but also the perception of the patients and healthcare providers on the illness. As such, cultural competence creates an opportunity for the nurse to have the ability to see a clear picture of the health outcomes and quality of care (Seeleman et al., 2009).

The Social and Cultural Contexts of Deviance

Generally, deviance is a behavior that is seen as harmful, disruptive, or criminal. However, it may come as the result of being statistically unique. This brings into question whether there can be positive deviance. For example, if a student got straight A+ grades, the Underachievers Club may view them like a deviant. As a group, they may place sanctions on them above and beyond what they would the average student. This illustrates the concept that deviance must be seen through the lens of the social or cultural context that it takes place in (Keel, 2008).
Social norms are the types of behavior that are established and maintained by society and are considered to be acceptable. Because deviance is the transgression of a norm a...

Maintaining Credibility in a Diversity Classroom

 The reason for choosing the above universities for research purposes is stated by the authors as: “The academy is a microcosm of the larger society in which we live and that America and all Western society remain provinces in which white men, and some White women, of a particular class and with particular dominant ideologies determine the nature of all of our existences” (Perry et al, 2009, p.83). The article is well researched and presents data gathered from surveys and other quantitative methods used to gauge the responses of the instructors to the questionnaire presented to them.

People as Cultural Beings and the Christian Posture

In recent times questions regarding the impact of Christianity over culture have become so prevalent that several of the modern intellectual disciplines consider it an archetype of orthodoxy that is aimed at restraining the newer cultural trends (Niebuhr 1956 p. 1-2).
However, the existing historical shreds of evidence clearly convey that despite Christianity has always been one of the most important factors in the context of determining people’s reciprocation towards a particular cultural trend, but different civilizations at different points of time have denied the impact of the Christian culture as those perceived that it can be a threat against individuality of their respective cultural tends, “Not only Jews b...

Business Sustainability and Society: Coca-Cola Company

... on majority, is indirectly considering the actions of continuing the bottling plant as an ethical decision, rather than an unethical one. Ethical Relativism (Kolb, pp. 47-56, 2007) is another significant ethical theory that has been contributing in the evaluation process of many case studies globally since decades. One of the major reasons of selecting this ethical theory is cultural diversity of the Coca-Cola Company that has now become a global citizen, and thus, this theory (Swift, pp. 46-78, 2006) will be efficient in evaluating the ethical and sustainable issues identified earlier in the paper. Ethical Relativism (Everson, pp. 33-41, 1998) suggests that it is very essential and important to consider the ethical principles...

The European Directive which created a wider framework for consultation and information has transcended the local level of collective employment relations. The employees’ rights to participation have for the first time become truly transnational. Although there are little literature regarding its actual performance and effectiveness, the overall framework is an ideal model that can be adopted globally.
