Arab Knowledge Sharing in a Multicultural Workforce: A Dual Case Study in the UAE

Arab national culture has a counterproductive effect on knowledge sharing with foreign co-workers, due to heavy cultural emphasis on trust, ‘wasta’, status, power and strong social networks and informal communications, all of which are difficult to achieve with external temporary workers. Arab knowledge sharing attitudes were also found to differ amongst different co-worker groups; a result that conflicts with Hofstede’s original findings on Arab culture’s high collectivism score.
