193 Workshop Brinkmann, Ursula; LaValle-Finan, Lisa; Looij, Teuni; van der Pol, Yvonne; Henkel, Steffen; Brakenhoff, Hanneke; Gottlieb, Doris: "Towards a Competency Framework for Intercultural Practitioners"
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.
