“Working with different people from different parts of the world is like preparing the fruit salad. Our company is the cook who has to select the best people who will be part of the team, our company did not choose one origin, one color, one race, one nationality, the team comprise of diverse cultures with each of their own beliefs and traditions“
I will not tell you a story. Instead I will teach you how to make my favorite dessert, FRUIT SALAD. This is a typical Filipino dessert you can find in fiestas and birthday celebrations. It is one of the most essential part of the full meal course because at the end of the day guests will say “NASAN NA ANG FRUIT SALAD? (Where’s the fruit salad?)”.
So First step, is prepare the ingredients you want in to have in your salad, preferably I would like my fruit salad to have, MANGO, WATERMELON, BANANA, FRUIT COCKTAIL MIX, MILK & CREAM. Next step, cut the fruits in desired shapes and remove the rotten ones. Next, add the condensed milk & cream till it is fully binding with the fruits, then chill and serve. So what’s the significance of what I am talking about right now? SIMPLE. It signifies my life in Seidor as an employee.
Working with different people from different parts of the world is like preparing the fruit salad. Our company is the cook who has to select the best people who will be part of the team, our company did not choose one origin, one color, one race, one nationality, the team comprise of diverse cultures with each of their own beliefs and traditions. Now, the milk & cream, or the binding force of this huge differences is technology. Let’s admit it, we can cross all the gaps through the power of technology, we can even build connections to these people through the use of technology.
As time passes and technology is upgrading every second, the way of connecting to people becomes narrow. Somehow being in the technology realm made me realize that we have tons of means nowadays in crossing the barriers. One major barrier when it comes to a multi-national company is, language. It’s pretty tough to think how will they work as a team, if communication, which is one of the most essential factor for teamwork, is the major problem? Technology made it a lot easier, it reshaped the modern workplace, and it developed ways and means on how to understand one another. The rising of technology in any company changed how the business is running, it can create smooth workflow and good working relationships with colleagues which will create a very nice dessert, which is TEAM WORK.
