In present scenario, this report deals with Hofstede's cultural dimensions model along with itsdimensions that affect functionality of a business concern. Furthermore, this report deals withvarious suggestions that have been made based on this model. Also self evaluation or analysishas been considered in this report.Main Body1. Evaluate the suggestions made on the Hofstede's culture dimensions.From the provided article it has been examined that organisational culture of a businessconcern should be quite effective. Also it has been recommended that organisation culture shouldbe such that risk taking gets minimised. This will help a company in gaining higher scores onuncertainty avoidance index. Also employees should follow set guidelines and standards so as tomaintain effectiveness in their organisational culture. By providing such suggestions, ith as beenexamined that rules and regulations that have been laid down by senior management arefollowed in appropriate manner by employees which will further help them in achieving theirorganisational goals and objectives. In present context, employees feel that rules set up bymanagement are not effective hence they do not support these yet they will need to abide bythem in order to maintain their job in that company. Every business concern employs staff fromdifferent cultural background and in accordance with that rules are framed. This can many atimes hurt the sentiments of employees as they many feel neglected.Hence to overcome this issue, it has been recommended that any organisation that isfunctioning at international level should consider cultural differences of employees and thenmake rules. This eradicates chances of chaos or confusion and also helps in maintaining healthyworking culture in an organisation. This will further help in achievement of goals and objectiveswithin a specified time frame. On the other hand if companies do not consider requirements ofemployees while framing laws then it becomes quite complicated for employees to functioneffectively. Also it will hamper performance of employees as they tend to get demotivated andlack a sense of trust and belongingness towards the company.Another important factor that has been discussed or recommended in this report is thatvalues followed by a business concern should be quite visible and clear. Also managers aresuggested to express these values so that employees are clear about them while they are working.
