5:35 PM Global HR - Navigating Cultural Differences Across Multinational Workforces

As companies globalize and operate across markets in multiple countries, more and more people are increasingly working with colleagues from different countries.  Developing cross-cultural competencies to communicate with workforces in different nations can be difficult but the companies who succeed at this will always outperform the competition. Yet differences in cultural communication and widely varying practices in cultural business practices can lead to miscommunication and impact your ability to coordinate talent strategy and roll out unified HR policies. In this session, HR leaders who operate in the US, Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean will discuss their successes and challenges in navigating HR in a cross-cultural, multi-national workforce.  Learn more about: 

•How poor cross-cultural competencies can negatively impact your workforce
•Understanding  how cultural business practices effect the productivity of different management styles
•Developing HR strategies that allow for cultural adaptations in multinational markets
