From your research on religions of the world you will recall that Buddhists believe in the concept of no self. You may also remember in the movie Gung Ho that Japanese business culture is more team oriented than individual oriented. The Japanese business model may have originated to some extent from their major religion which emphasizes no self.

Muslims pray five times each day according to the Five Pillars of Islam. This means that time will have to be given during the work day for employees to bow towards Mecca and pray.

Hindus believe that the cow is of the highest level in the caste system of reincarnation. Therefore, the marketing of any leather goods or beef products made from cows would be an extreme violation of their cultural values.

Nike made a religious error when they produced a shoe with a similar symbol to one in the Islamic religion. Nike had to destroy an entire shoe line to appease this Muslim country and continue to do business there.
