Working across cultures

Cultural diversity at isgood is one of our greatest assets. We’re a global organisation, with team members, partners and stakeholders from many different cultures.

Understanding cultural difference is a responsibility of all of us. It leads to better outcomes, a more effective team and greater job satisfaction for everyone.

A well-researched tool to understand and compare your culture with those of others is Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions. This tool helps develop an understanding of the underlying cultural drivers of the people we work with. You can compare your own culture with others across 6 key dimensions. You can also use this to open conversations with your colleagues, for instance, to test whether an issue might be to do with cultural expectations.
