L'identité interculturelle dans l'organisation de salariés lorrains d'une multinationale sud-coréenne : contextualisation représentationnelle des relations intergroupes

Abstract : This research analyses the effect of intranational and international cultural diversity on the identity of local employees in the plant of a South Korean multinational company settled in Lorraine. The framework unifies the method of representational contextualization (Zavalloni et Louis-Guerin, 1984; Durand-Delvigne, 1992) and current theories on intergroup relationships (Tajfel, 1972; Turner et col., 1987; Doise, 1984; Lorenzi-Cioldi, 1988). applied to subjects of this study, it heads up three principle hypotheses: 1) the threat to the identity of local employees, 2) the differentiation in the treatment of hierarchical and cultural categories of the same individuals within the organization, 3) the most noticable domination concerning the perception of intranational groups of persons of foreign origin. This work is divided into three parts: 1) a theoretical review justifying the pertinence of the representational contextualization of intergroup relations - with regard to a synthesis of work taking into account the notion of culture in the domain of work and of organization, 2) the analysis of the terrain justifies the interview guide, 3) the interpretation of results of cross-referenced classification statistics, multidimensional scaling and factorial analyses of the connections effected through SPAD-T verify the hypotheses. The results shows that the threat to identity of local employees, due to Korean characteristics grafted onto the social environment at work, can be compensated by the impression which the subjects have of those persons who are of foreign origin. In addition, compared with those of French origin, those subjects of foreign origin would appear to have a more open self-concept towards cultural heterogeneity in the enterprise and would appear to thereby gain greater self-esteem. This research thus proves that intranational cultural diversity can contribute to limiting the negative effects of an international encounter
