In this boundryless company, headquarter located in Berlin, Germany, and its structure

outsourcing company in Kiev, Ukraine, while the marketing in Los Angeles, the company have
a lot of employees who are coming from different cultures all of them collaborate working
together to achieve their organizational goals. As a result Employees are also very diverse in
their values, personality, and work preferences which at the end for a deep-level diversity.
Some cultural issues that are sensitive will rise in the workplace and create unpleasant
things among employees. For that Employees might not be working together because they will
have fighting in the decision making. There is a need of a good research to understand different
biological characteristics like gender, race, ethnicity, age, or disability, will improve the surfacelevel diversity. In a company like Newskool almost all employees are creative as part of them as
programmers like those who work in kiev and like to accept challenges. Accordingly, in this
similar personality and work environment, they should be oriented in working with others as a
team. Training for team building with different cultures people will be quite important.
When Looking at the conflicts that rises in Newskool,one of them is the difficulties in
decision-making as employees are fighting each other as they do what they think is bettr
according to anthe culture they are coming from these fight results in wasting a lot of time
which is needed to achiever the organizational goals . Employees who are different in culture
will come up with different openions based on the cultures they came from and the values they
have . for that it will be good to have a proper discussion in decision making, and few managers
can have the authority in making decision in this discussion. It is not a lot of thing s or tasks to
be done it is just one decision to be taken . so all employee of the organization should share
their openions and not fight in order to reach this decision
Another kind of conflict will be inefficiency. Yes, different people must perform different
tasks in their organization, but Newskool is boundaryless. When Gerd, the founder and the CEO
does not satisfy with the tasks accomplished , he asks his employees to do the work tasks
again. which will cause a waste in resources as Gerd expecting something different from his
employees who are already different in culture. Sometimes, it is good to have hierarchy as
people can know who to refer, which department to function and so on.

This conflict is a function of different types of work people have to perform. The
employees that are sometimes so dominant and think their works are correct, refuse to listen to
Gerd and do things according to their own way.
Types of people are likely to be satisfied are competent, anxious, empowered and open
people. This based on self efficacy theory; this theory refers to an individuals belief that he or
she is capable of performing task. People who posses self efficiency believe that they are
capable in behaving in a way that produce that outcome they want.
In Newskool Groovers, the employees are participating in decision making and
innovation, creative and competent people. And this is normal after the technology revolution
we are living now as it plays a major role as a communication medium in the boundaryless
organization,for that much work is done from a distance like via e-mail, phone, and fax.in the
other hand Less work is done in traditional face-to-face settings. Virtual collaboration makes it
easier to use the expertise of a broader range of individuals. With telecommuting, international
employees are more easily made a part of all business processes. Employees often like the
freedom that boundaryless work offers them, particularly with virtual teams and more flexible
work plans, arrangements, and schedules. Due to that, employee in company satisfied with the
area of the company. Characteristic employees in company are likely competent and strong
team skills.and this appear so clear as they are not obliged to work at a certain time so they
work at night while sleeping in the day time

the "big five" are broad categories of personality traits. While there is a significant
body of literature supporting this five-factor model of personality, researchers
don't always agree on the exact labels for each dimension. However, these five
categories are usually described as follows:

1. Extraversion: This trait includes characteristics such as excitability, sociability,


talkativeness, assertiveness and high amounts of emotional expressiveness.
2. Agreeableness: This personality dimension includes attributes such as trust, ,
kindness, affection, and other prosocial behaviors.
3. Conscientiousness: Common features of this dimension include high levels of
thoughtfulness, with good impulse control and goal-directed behaviors. Those
high in conscientiousness tend to be organized and mindful of details.

4. Neuroticism: Individuals high in this trait tend to experience emotional


instability, anxiety, moodiness, irritability, and sadness.
5. Openness: This trait features characteristics such as imagination and insight,
and those high in this trait also tend to have a broad range of interests.

From Big Five traits, the suitable use for selection are openness and conscientiousness.

In openness the supervisor can increased learning, more creative, and more flexible. It can
effect their training performance, enhanced leadership and more adaptable to change. The
second is conscientiousness relevant is greater effort and persistence; more drive and discipline,
and better organized and planning. The effects are it cans higher performance, enhanced
leadership, and greater longevity.

Socialization is the process by which the person is shaped by his or her environment. In
the case of newskool the company should plan and implement socialized program and in order
to do that they have to analyze the activities before starting up. Even The manager himself
cannot find any idea or move one step forward without making a brainstorming process with all
Gerd Fingers proactive and good employees. So by involving the employees in the discussion
knowing their ideas and discuss the objections could increase the great idea in order to reach
an ideal decision at the end. In addition not all the offices in the company need the same
requirements, for example some of the offices in Newskool Grooves required a lot of creativity
effort, so it makes easy for each office to come with different type of socialization program due
to its different specialization, for example the marketing office in Los Angeles, they are required
more creativity to handle the great way for marketing the product compare in opposite to the
Keiv offices that required more independence to carry out the duties as the programmers,
finally we will see different activity and different roles according to the nature of the office and
the nature of its work. Any activity will never be done perfectly and reach its goals by depend
on the willingness of employee itself, so the cooperation and willingness by these employees
considered as an important factors in achieving the organization goals thing that determine
either the employee want to support and approve this activity or otherwise against it. Other
than that, the manager should considered almost all aspects in organization, including the cost
to carry out the activity, it is not really an easy things to make a balanced activity that required
ideal creativity and independence without looking the cost that will be incurred for such
unprofitable activities toward customer.

In conclusion, the essential thing that should be taken before establish these creative
and independence activities are by making a brainstorming and choose the best ideas among all
employees, let each office bring out different type of activity because these office are not
sharing the same specializes, then the cooperative and willingness of the members in
organization is really vital in order to establish this ideal activity. Other than that, the cost factor
will be included before making any decision which will be affected the financial level of
company.
