Fishbowl convo to share my insights and experience with NYC SHRM's Global HR SIG about “Cross Cultural Communication Skills in the Globalized Workplace” to foster a dialogue of self-awareness and empathy, skill-building, and above all, the empowering force of cultural dexterity for participants who support executives and their families in global transition.
Ensuring the safety of your expatriate workforce and traveling employees involves both workplace and domestic management. The traditional HR and corporate security functions extend far beyond the workplace in order to identify and analyze the foreseeable risks which an expat assignee or business traveler may be exposed to while on assignment. As work forces become more mobile, fulfilling duty of care can seem like a daunting task for employers which is made more challenging by the inconsistent standards across the globe. The balance between having reasonable processes in place to protect staff overseas and conducting business in an efficient and profitable manner can sometimes be difficult.
