By Angelika Ernst

Kulturen finden ihren Ausdruck nicht nur in gesellschaftlichen Normsetzun gen und Werthaltungen, sondern auch in den jeweiligen Strukturen und Funktionen von Organisationen und Institutionen einer Gesellschaft. Aus tauschprozesse auf dem Arbeitsmarkt, das Ausmass der Formalisierung, Stan dardisierung und Spezialisierung von Arbeitsaufgaben, der Zuschnitt von horizontalen und vertikalen Karrieren sind immer auch an Regeln gebunden, die gesellschaftliche Anerkennung finden.
