Question: Abraham Hofstede’s research offers modern theory a foundational understanding of cultural differences. Hofstede contributed to the notion of universal/ global factors that all human tribes/ cultures are established upon and further argued that all societies differ along fundamental cultural dimensions. As a prospective Human Resource (HR) practitioner understanding foundational theory allows for a comprehensive understanding of diversity management discourse.

It seems like you're asking about Geert Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory. Hofstede identified six categories or dimensions through which cultural variances could be analysed. Here are these six dimensions: 1. Power Distance Index (PDI): This refers to the extent to which the less powerful members of society accept that power is distributed unequally. In cultures with a high PDI, hierarchy is given much significance and there is often centralization of power. 2. Individualism vs Collectivism (IDV): This dimension tackles the degree to which people in a society are integrated into groups. Individualistic cultures value individual rights and freedoms, privacy and personal time. In collectivistic societies, group harmony and consensus are highly valued. 3. Masculinity vs Femininity (MAS): This dimension pertains to the distribution of roles between genders in a society. A high MAS score indicates societies that are driven by competition, achievement and success, whereas a society with a low MAS score values cooperation, modesty and quality of life. 4. Uncertainty Avoidance Index (UAI): This index reflects the degree to which a society tolerates uncertainty and ambiguity. Societies exhibiting high UAI maintain rigid codes of belief and behaviour and are intolerant of unorthodox behaviour and ideas. 5. Long-Term Orientation vs Short-Term Orientation (LTO): This dimension reflects values linked to past and future challenges, perseverance, and thrift. In short-term oriented societies, traditions and norms of the past are honored, while in long-term oriented societies, greater emphasis is placed on future-oriented behaviours like persistence and saving. 6. Indulgence vs Restraint (IND): This final dimension relates to the extent a society allows individuals to enjoy life and have fun. Indulgent societies permit relatively free gratification of basic natural human drives related to enjoying life and having fun, while restrained societies suppress gratification of needs and regulate it by social norms. Understanding these dimensions can help HR professionals manage cultural diversity within organizations.
