Berlin is a hotspot of cultures, a melting pot of nationalities, languages and diversity. Young people from all over the world come here to work, study and live. Startup boast with the intercultural atmosphere and monthly international nights. every seem to embrace the differences and live in peace. But is it actually so?
Cultural diversityis not only a cool selling point for startups, but also a challenge that many companies seem to underestimate. Why does your Latin American SEO is always late? Why is your Russian Front-end Developer always look upset? Why can't your Indian Marketing manager answer the question directly? With the increase of diversity, there is always an increase of tension, misunderstanding and the ways your employees interprete what is being said through their own cultural prism.
