Hofstede’s Onion Model of Culture

In 1980 Geert Hofstede started to develop a set of four layers. At the core where values in other words, how people believe things ‘ought to be’, what they hold dear to them. This in turn is effected by the other layers of SYMBOLS i.e. words, artefacts, pictures, RITUALS i.e. festivals, ways of paying respect, trends and ICONS i.e. persons admired by the society as a whole. He also defined 4 dimensions; Power Distance, Individuality, Uncertainty Avoidance and Masculinity. The model and dimensions are explored and interpreted during the day and turned into practical tools to assist in your cross cultural communication both at work and socially.
