Culture, Gender, and Cultural Evolution From a cultural evolutionary perspective (e.g., Sahlins & Ser-vice, ), cultural and gender differences are unlikely to be characterized by the same dimensions of the self. According to this view, symbolic culture develops in part as a means of adap-tation to the social and natural environment. employees are unintimidated and motivated to work with. “Individualism on the one side versus its opposite, collectivism is the degree to which individuals are integrated into groups. “ (Hofstede, ) China is a highly collectivist culture, where all individuals are part of the unit, with the most fundamental unit being that of family.

On the cultural dimension of Individualism-Collectivism (I-C), Indian national culture shows a strong emphasis on collectivism (Hofstede ). But even within same cultures the approach of individuals towards individualism and collectivism vary because of various reasons like gender differences, racial differences, caste differences.   This paper examines the relationship between culture and redistribution, focusing on the individualism-collectivism dimension of culture. Perhaps surprisingly, countries with more individualistic cultures have significantly greater income redistribution and lower levels of after-tax income inequality.

  This approach is known as individualism. Asian cultures, by contrast, emphasize cooperation and view people as groups rather than distinct individuals, which is known as collectivism. As a business owner, it's your responsibility to decide which approach you want to implement for the workplace culture.   Individualism is the second dimension that Hofstede describes out of the first four dimensions of culture (the other three are Power distance, Masculinity, and Uncertainty Avoidance). n the other side from Individualism, you can find Collectivism.
