Description

The Hofstede (1994) dimensions of culture were measured for 586 middle managers in South Africa. A similarity on these dimensions was found between the ethnic groups. Both management culture and perceived management effectiveness were found to be independent of both race and the dimensions of culture. These findings suggest that employee diversity in the workplace should not adversely affect management performance.
