Respecting Gratitude as Cultural

Though it is important to promote gratitude in the workplace, it is also critical to respect cultural variation in expressing gratitude.

It would be interesting to look at cultural variation when promoting gratitude in the workplace. Do all cultures value gratitude in the same way? Do different cultural norms affect ability to express gratitude, and could this in turn result in negative effects from being expected to receive or express gratitude? I think some interviewing and research could provide insight into these questions, for example in the study Culture matters when designing a successful happiness-increasing activity: A comparison of the United States and South Korea. 

Layous, K., Lee, H., Choi, I., & Lyubomirsky, S. (2013). Culture matters when designing a successful happiness-increasing activity: A comparison of the United States and South Korea. Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 44(8), 1294-1303. doi:10.1177/0022022113487591
