What is cultural diversity? Diversity is nothing more than a difference from the majority. In any culture there is a majority and many minorities. Culture is a set of norms that set standards for a society of what is acceptable behavior.
In every culture there are basic standards for social interaction such as personal space distance, eye contact, amount of body language displayed in public, negotiating style, etc.
I will say that I am lucky enough to have the privilege of working with diverse people from round the world no matter whether into my previous organisation or the present one. But nevertheless I would say its not about the language that matters but about the relation you build through your body language, eye contact, flexibility and adaptation.
This can be one of the parameters which can help an organisation to develop clients not only in its home country but also in overseas.
Cultural diversity makes an organisation richer by making it a more interesting place in which one can work. Just think how boring a meal would be without Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, Italian, German, French or Indian food! This is something to be noted if our case is considered.
Cultural diversity in a company also makes it stronger and better able to compete in the new global economy, if we think globally. People from diverse cultures bring language skills, new ways of thinking, creative solutions to difficult problems and negotiating skills.
