The emergence of globalization has stressed on the need ofintercultural communication. Cross-cultural communication in addition to being a businessissue also helps in characterizing the community and classroom (Moran, Abramson & Moran,2014). Technology also has a role in promoting cross-cultural communication through thepresence of internet that has enhanced the probability of things documented online and readby people of other culture. Businesses inevitably draw in people from different backgroundsand therefore needs to get accustomed with different working style of the workers belongingto the varied cultures. Therefore, it is necessary for the business firms to understand theimportance of cross- cultural differences in the operations that helps the management tocommunicate easily with the people belonging to varied cultural backgrounds. However, thecommunication system of business organizations remain interspersed with the rules,practices, values and philosophy followed by the business.Communicating system acts as a bridge in transmitting the norms and valuesassociated with the different cultures in the organization. As the communication systemhelps the transcending of the differences in culture, a multinational company regardscommunication systems as a mechanism for transferring knowledge (Thomas & Peterson,2017). Multinational companies should therefore overcome the barriers of cross-culturalcommunication for effectively attaining the objectives of the organization. The interculturalcommunication-taking place in business entities takes cognizance of the differences but at thesame time help in developing a synthesis where there must also be unity amongst diversity.
