The purpose of this study is to examine empirically the cultural problem and working attitude in the Korean vessel of combined foreign crews, Currently, the restrictions on the employment of the foreign crews are being eased in the Korean shipping industry and many problems such as misunderstanding and dissonance in working have been occurred consequently, However, specific and empirical studies regarding different culture between Korean and foreign crews working together in the vessel have not yet carried out, So this study is meaningful as exploratory research about cultural homogeneity, onboard working tolerance and organization commitment for combined foreign crews and the result of this study contributes to management of crew and vessel organization.
