(Benciveng?? 1995) The discussi?n ?n culture ??ints ?ut th?t v?lues ?nd n?rms ?f the ?si?n culture tend t? be different fr?m Western ethics. ?n HR m?n?ger h?s t? c?nsider the dissimil?rity ?nd ?d??t t? l?c?l cust?ms.

It is essenti?l t? tr?in the w?rkf?rce in ?rder ?f ?v?iding sur?rise such ?s the m?n?ger ?f ? le?ther c?m??ny h?s ex?erienced.
