Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Cultural diversity has become an essential factor that affects many organizational outcomes at workplaces. Instead of focusing on the effects induced by factual degrees of cultural diversity the current study set out to discover the importance of subjective aspects of cultural diversity and their effects on organizational outcomes. A survey questionnaire was distributed in an international telecom company in Stockholm to collect data. The results showed that perceived positive organizational identity was associated with high propensity to self-categorize to one’s organizational identity, which in turn generated positive attitudes towards cultural diversity. Moreover, the findings also indicated that subjective aspects of cultural diversity, including self perceived organizational identity, processes of self-categorization and attitudes towards diversity factors make a fairly effective model in predicting organizational outcomes such as satisfaction, performance, as well as organizational attachment.
