The video in this post will showcase a few important aspects of American professional life, including:
  • The importance of time
  • Proper dress codes
  • Respect for the office space
  • Appropriate Language
  • Unacceptable and acceptable topics for small talk
Questions to ponder while watching the video:
  1. What do you notice about American workplace values and work culture by watching this video?
  2. Is there anything new or different that you did not expect in the video?
  3. What are the similarities and differences between the US expectations and your culture’s expectation at work?
