Intercultural Communication: The Effect of Cultural Differences in Everyday Working Environment of Companies (from Germany, Switzerland, Austria) in Hungary

Listed author(s):
  • Krisztina Franko

    (University of Debrecen, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Hungary)

Registered author(s):

    The increasing globalization and cross-cultural interaction increases the importance of the realization of the successful intercultural cooperation. In this context, the identification of friction points and the improvement of the potentials of intercultural communication is an important project. On the basis of the research study the author shows that the formation of a culture that allows compromise can be considered as a possible success factor. The recognition and acknowledgment of cultural differences is an important prerequisite for the commercial success of international companies. The author believes that the culture (or the cultural society) influences the understanding of the management systems and communications on an organizational level and has a significant impact on the company's success through the intercultural communication of the employees. The presentation for the conference is based on the findings of a research proposal by Dr. Krisztina Frankó (2011), who finished her doctoral studies at the University of Berne (Switzerland) in 2010.
