ODE consulting and Culture in the Workplace questionnaire

ODE Consulting is a Singapore-based consultancy licensed by Geert Hofstede bv for using the CWQ.

The CWQ is the 'Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire' application, an indicative individual-level tool for assessing one’s cultural values. The CWQ is based on the Hofstede dimensions of national culture. It was developed by ITAP International in collaboration with Geert Hofstede.

ODE uses the CWQ and its results in  consulting, training and coaching to focus on culture’s impact on a wide variety of global business interactions in multi-cultural workforces. Contact: Email; Tel:+6563238020;  www.cultureinworkplace.com.
