The social culture of a diverse group is likely to influence the productivity and outcome of the group in different ways. First, there is the creation of a better performing group. A diverse team performs more efficiently and more swiftly that a group that is not diverse. The social culture of a group also encourages innovation and the members of the group are more likely to come up with creative solutions and strategies (Dowling, 2008). When the challenges of the organization are looked in a single view, there is a limitation of the potential however, from the perspective of a diverse group, different perspectives tend to arise. The culturally diverse groups consider strategies and solutions from a wider perspective as compared to other groups and as a result, the productivity of the group is increased.
Another way in which the social culture of the group is likely to influence workplace outcomes and group productivity is on the decision making structure of the organization. The decision making process in the organization is likely to change. With social culture, the decision making process tends to consider the all the cultures in the organization. A diverse culture in the organization can results in making of decisions that are all inclusive especially when the language being used in the organization considers all the different cultures. The diversity in the decision making process and the social culture available in the organization determines how productive the organization decisions will be.
The outcomes of the workplace are likely to be influenced by social culture as the employees will strive to reach a broader customer base. In the organization, social culture gives the employees from the different cultures a competitive edge as compared to other employees where the organization is not influenced by social culture (Dowling, 2008). The people will be able to market as the organization is diverse enough and as a result, productivity is increased.
The organizational culture is influenced by the diversity and social culture available especially on how certain operations are conducted. The major influence of diversity and social culture is on the language spoken. The culture of an organization involves one specific language that is used in communication but this change as a result of the influence of social culture and diversity. The language spoken has to change as it has to encompass all the different cultures in the organization. This changes the organizational culture itself.
