Abstract

Abstract
All employees, regardless of their social or cultural background, participate in the organization. Additionally, organizations function in a society that places a high value on norms and culture, and this stereotypical aspect of the society has a significant impact on feminism. The national culture, which is inextricably linked to the individual, is the driving force behind individual behavior in the organization. The innovation and ideas created by the staff are intended to improve the organization's performance. While attention was paid to cultural and national preconceptions that restrict women from being visible or speaking up, there are other variables that literature has uncovered that can impede the process of disseminating these ideas. In order to better understand how women in the public and private sectors share knowledge, this study looked at their country cultures and knowledge-sharing practices. The data were analyzed using a simple percentage after 200 respondents were conveniently chosen using non-probability sampling techniques. The findings demonstrated that the majority of respondents could cooperate with coworkers from various cultural backgrounds, that official language was used for communication, and that coworkers from the same ethnicity and religion could easily share ideas. It was suggested that teamwork should be heavily used to promote knowledge sharing because the majority of respondents found it difficult to approach their colleagues when they meet challenging jobs.
