A CRITICAL INVESTIGATION INTO THE EFFECTS OF ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE ON EMPLOYEES
This paper examines the impact of an employee’s culture on the way in which they work within an organizational context. The paper focuses on a case study of Japan. Its methodology is a literature review of the scholarly work on organizational culture. It concludes that the Japanese have a moderate score on power-distance, collectivism and indulgence; yet they also have a high score on masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, and long term orientation. The paper concludes that the complexity of Japanese society and individuals means that it is not always possible to justify the stereotypes. Consequently organizations must operate imaginatively in order to get the best out of their Japanese employees.
