Whether you’re entering a new market, working as part of a global virtual team or collaborating with international colleagues – by undertaking cultural awareness training, your global employees can communicate better and avoid the pitfalls of cultural blunders.
Cultural awareness training, for teams of 20–200 – help your employees to work together as one. Not only will this allow them to appreciate their differences, but actually value and harness that diversity to improve productivity, creativity, efficiency and profit.
What does it cover?
You’ll be working with experienced facilitators and cultural training experts who will tailor your programme to the specific business needs and cultures involved.
Understanding the different cultures within your workforce will help employees to interact with each other on a daily basis. It will also strengthen communication, productivity and teamwork and allow you to maximise the wealth of benefits that a culturally diverse team brings.
It’s not just international teams that can benefit from cultural training, but also marketing departments looking to engage customers on a global scale. Understanding other cultures better will allow you to create more engaging campaigns that resonate with customers wherever they are.
We’ll usually kick things off with fact-finding, this normally includes surveys and reports for team members so that we can ascertain the cultural landscape and level of understanding. Once we have this, we’ll build your bespoke programme that may include online or in-person training, workshops and practical sessions.
We want to ensure you see results and may suggest a buddy system between team members to keep each other supported and create an ongoing skill assessment and development plan if necessary.
