Ikea is planning to enter the Indian market, what are potential sources of conflict between Swedish managers and Indian employees?

I am interested in what potential conflicts might arise due to cultural differences. Furthermore, it would be great to get the personal perspective from Swedish or Indian members.

  • Sep 29 2012: I would like to try ikea's food in India. Curry meatballs sounds good.
  • Sep 28 2012: Let me take a guess,

    wages
    profit sharing
    pensions
    working hours
    working conditions
    paid time off
    defined career path
    authority to shut down for unsafe conditions due to accidents

    I am sure there are many more. Just ask any union negotiator.
