Cultural differences in the workplace? A questionnaire is waiting for your thoughts and ideas!

If I have to think about some of my favourite movies about workplaces, I could say I have seen just one movie over and over again even if that's not actually true and I have seen a lot of movies. But it's not that complicated to find similarities between most of them, because they...

  • come from the Eighties;
  • are romantic comedies or at least comedies;
  • have amazing female characters;
  • show horrible clothes, haircuts and styles.

Just a couple of titles? Well, Working Girl and Nine to Five for sure.

But today I don't want just to talk about movies. Today I'd like to invite you to fill a questionnaire in a fully as possible. What kind of questionnaire?

For her Masterdegree in organisational psychology at the Ghent University (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences), Jozefien De Wolf is conducting a study about cultural differences by making a comparison between the economic behavior in different cultures (the Flemish and German ones, to be more specific).

She needs people who work in Germany and understand good German, to fill in the 'famous' questionnaire.
It takes about 15-20 minutes to fill in and it's completely anonymous, but it's possible to indicate an e-mail address to be contacted or receive the results of the study. And to win two movie tickets!

Help Jozefien and spread the word to friends, fellows and colleagues, ok?
