There has been a flow of social capital throughout the entire world, people have always been searching for better living opportunities, and companies have always been looking for human capital. The future labor market will depend more on social capital and cross-cultural relationships, because workers want to broaden their minds to learn and provide a pool of new ideas and ways of doing things. The Gulf States in particular have invested heavily in economic diversification, to secure economical and political stability through stable income. This paper begins to explore the definition of social capital as its the base that bond the relations between individuals and among them. It then illustrates what multicultural teams mean, the problems occur that derive from the different cultures they come from and the role of trust within these teams. It then discusses the relationship between multicultural teams and social capital by exploring the role of the workplace in building social capital. Finally the paper demonstrates the relationship in depth by analyzing it through an internship held in the Department of Economic Development in Dubai. The information collected and analyzed is presented clearly and in details in respondent to the interviews held with employees within the organization.
