Defining and understanding the elements of a group culture is essential to forging a professional identity either online or in person. These elements are important because they reflect how professionals interact, whether online or in person.
An industrial or work place culture consists of different occupations, roles and statuses. A hospital is an excellent example of a number of people working in close proximity representing different occupational groups. Patients, nurses, health care specialists, surgeons, administrators, security, and support staff groups all function together but may be identified by their equipment, behaviors and language, and the tools and training used to get their work completed.
In this Assignment you will write a descriptive report about the culture of a group of people, a company, or an organization based on background research and an interview of a professional person who is part of that culture.

Select and interview a professional person in your field of interest.
