CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATIONS REVIEW
Cross-cultural communicational differences occur at all levels of an organisation: between individuals on a team, on the executive board during a merger or even within your HR department communicating with HQ.
We ensure that all your cross-cultural communications (teams working remotely, staff communicating with key personnel overseas) are optimised through careful observation and analysis so we can provide best practice advice and tailor training to suit your specific corporate context. See this case study example of a Communications Report we recently produced for a large Japanese MNE working with teams from both the Japanese HQ and European HQ, to increase cross-cultural collaboration and better project outcomes for engineers working across different processes.
Companies wanting to globalise must develop leaders with cultural sensitivities and inter-cultural communication skills.
