HR Consulting Skills for Foreign Assignments

According to a study by the British Council the biggest challenge faced by international companies is finding and holding onto employees with intercultural communication and action skills. Another challenge is the sensitisation of skilled specialists and managers for the far-reaching intercultural learning process and the resulting opportunities.

Our “HR Consulting Skills for Foreign Assignments” seminar is aimed at companies, managers and staff development looking to support their employees on foreign assignments and in their successful reintegration back into the company after they return.

Seminar participants gain an insight into the duties associated with expatriate management, preparation for foreign assignments, supervision of expats during their assignments abroad, and successful reintegration of the deployed employees once they return home.
