How to recruit and retain Global Talent
More than ever before corporate success is closely related to the company bench strength. In a globalized economy the race for attracting and retaining top performers is fiercely competitive.
Like with all other aspects of global management, cross-border people management requires specific knowledge about what drives people of various origin and how to achieve business goals when managing global talent.
We are uniquely positioned to command the combined consequences of National and Organizational Culture for global business management.
People Management around the World
We design programs that help companies deal with challenges related to strategic talent-oriented goals, such as: management of outsourced operations, boosting innovation, capitalizing on diversity.
By means of our highly interactive workshops, case studies and simulations, executives in charge of matching the best talent to the task are trained to understand:
different expectations which different Cultures have about a job interview
variance of communication styles across Cultures and how to adjust to that
the different cultural factors that influence performance evaluation
what to expect when you need information sharing, feedback, or out-of-the-box ideas in a diverse cultural context
what motivates (or, not) top talent for upwards mobility
analytical tools and checks that reveal the degree to which executives' style matches organizational culture, and how to maximize it for performance
