American Work Culture and Values

Most American workplaces appear similar in some ways, particularly from the perspective of people from outside the United States. When you understand the values underlying the American workplace, you'll know better what to expect. And this, in turn, may help you develop positive approaches to the cultural differences you encounter. Adjusting to a new work environment and understanding the cultural and behavioral characteristics of your new colleagues are two key challenges for someone coming from abroad to work in the United States. This course describes the main values in American culture that influence behavior in the workplace. It explains the typical stages you go through when adjusting to a new culture – in this case, American work culture. And it provides guidelines that can help you respond constructively to the challenges you may face when working abroad in the United States.

Key Aspects of the American Work Environment

Relocating abroad to the United States can be a rewarding and exciting experience. However, going into an unfamiliar workplace environment can also raise a myriad of questions. Do I relate to my coworkers in a particular way now that I'm in a different culture? Do I manage my career in the same way as I would in my own country? Who do I turn to for support? This course addresses these questions by describing key aspects of the American workplace that you may be unfamiliar with. It covers how to deal effectively with the diversity you'll likely encounter in an American setting, what the expectations are for being a boss or subordinate in an American workplace, and how you can manage your career in a new environment.
