Why You May Find US Colleagues ‘More Polite’ than Brits

In a highly entertaining 4-minute video at the BBC, an American man working at a London PR firm talks to a British woman working at a US law firm about cultural office differences. Among the highlights, the British are apparently more likely to curse loudly and casually. They also serve a great deal of tea, even if it means delaying the start of a meeting for an extra five minutes. And they seem to offer significantly more vacation time too. Perhaps American offices could stand to learn a few things. But that being said, the enthusiastic sense of community in American offices is refreshing.

For further entertaining insights, you can view the video here: http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20170207-why-you-may-find-american-collegues-more-polite-than-brits
