Mediation between cultural differences

Mediation on cultural differences is very important in today’s society. Today’s society is a colourful mix of people from many different countries and cultures. That sounds very cosy, and it is. But with about 200 different nationalities in the Netherlands, the differences in cultures, languages and customs sometimes lead to misunderstandings, misunderstandings and even conflicts. That is why the help of an HR mediator from The Hague, who also works in Rotterdam, is sometimes desirable.

What makes mediation with cultural differences important?

Intercultural conflicts almost always arise from ignorance of each other’s customs and misunderstandings in communication. People have the feeling of not understanding each other. Due to a lack of communication, the other party’s behaviour can easily be misunderstood. While the other party often just does not know what or how to say something. Irritation grows and tensions increase. You then desperately need an HR mediator in The Hague or Rotterdam.

Be aware of the different views on the conflict

Tensions can be exacerbated by the way people look at people in a different position or job. Every culture looks at differences between men and women and the way they relate to each other through their own ‘glasses’. Culture has taught us how to deal with other people, especially those in a hierarchically higher or lower position. This may be different in each culture and, in an intercultural working environment, may lead to misunderstandings or conflicts. An employee who does not dare say to his employer that he cannot or will not do something may say yes and do no. While an employer who is authoritarian will find it rude if employees voice their opinions about a decision. Colleagues who do not know each other’s backgrounds, values and norms find it difficult to work together due to a lack of understanding end up in an intercultural conflict. This makes intercultural communication and mediation in the event of differences, such as cultural differences, important. Therefore, for intercultural mediation in the workplace in Utrecht, Rotterdam or The Hague, you turn to Mohamedajoeb Mediators.
