Globalization has presented new challenges to organizations. One of the most critical issues is effectively building a global workforce that is competent and committed to the organization’s mission and objectives.
Workforces have become more culturally diverse. Even though an organization may have operations concentrated in a single country the mobility of talent results in people coming from other countries. They bring their cultural orientation with them and beliefs and values are not easily changed. As a result each organization must recognize cultural differences, respect the rights of people to have differing perspectives and reconcile the issues cultural diversity creates.
This 2-day seminar presents concepts, theories, principles and techniques for effectively managing a workforce globally. The focus is to identify effective strategies relating to staffing, development, performance management, remuneration management, legal/regulatory compliance and employee/ labor relations in globally dispersed and culturally diverse organizations.
1. To ensure attendees understand the issues related to effectively managing a workforce in a global environment.
2. To inform attendees about human resource strategies and programs that will be economically feasible, legal and acceptable to employees as fair, competitive and appropriate.
3. To engage attendees in exploring alternative approaches to meeting the challenges associated with a global workforce and evaluating how different approaches can address the issues faced by their organizations.
