Intercultural/Diversity Awareness AssignmentBao Quoc PhamBusiness- Human Resources Program, Fanshawe CollegeMGMT1196: HR Mentorship FoundationsDiana Sinatra-AraujoOctober 29, 2021PART AI will choose Hanoi; the capital of Vietnam is my Business Trip destination. I will go in Januaryand February. There is Vietnamese New Year’s Day which is called “Tt Nguyên Đán” in thisếperiod of time. The climate in Hanoi will be around 20-22 Celsius degrees which are cool, chillyand maybe foggy at night. Current events in the news in this period of time are about people aredecorating for the Tet holiday on the road and in their houses. The news may also talk about thenumber of days in the holiday. Some people will start selling flowers on the street, but mostpeople will come back to their homes outside of the city. The most popular event in the Tetholiday is the firework at various locations in Hanoi city. When welcoming someone, say "XinChào" (which means Hello) to demonstrate your interest in Vietnamese culture. The handshake,like in other nations, is a frequent form of greeting in the Vietnamese business world. Whengreetings, a small bow of the head and handshaking show thanks or respect for your partners. InVietnam, hugging is rare and having one or both hands in pockets will mean that you arearrogant and disrespectful. The dress code in the business culture of Vietnam looks to beconservative, which means that business partners should dress officially yet modestly. Men oftenattend meetings dressed in black suits and ties. Formal dresses or blouses with high necklines, on
the other hand, are typical for businesswomen. Normally, the Vietnamese host will give you asignal to begin the dinner, and the tastiest dish will be served to you as a guest. Rice bowls andchopsticks are associated with the Vietnamese dining style. Making a loud noise with thechopsticks on the bowl is considered disrespectful and impolite. Tea is frequently offered atreception as a symbol of hospitality in most business situations, and you should be happy toaccept it. The northern region of Vietnam prefers hot tea, whilst the southern region prefers icedtea or soft beverages. If you are welcomed to a Vietnamese house, bring fruit, candy, flowers, orincense. Handkerchiefs, anything black, yellow flowers, or chrysanthemums should be avoided.
