behaviour, expectations and how to smoothly interact with them. Business etiquette is highly valued at Iceland by respecting the individual attitudes and values. Corporate social responsibility is not well understood in the country despite the fact that businesses adhere to environment conservancy and other business guidelines. Punctuality and dress code is highly valued in workplaces at Iceland ( Brancu, Guðmundsdóttir, Gligor, & Munteanu, 2015). Official dress code is among the top workplace expectation when it come impression. Bribery and corruption is regarded as a serious offence in Iceland and gifts giving is a norm were the visitors come with small gifts. Therefore, Josh needs to understand these cultural expectations while working in Iceland and adhere to them to integrate well in the Icelanders’ business world.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
