Managing Globally Integrated Workforces

Share best practice with fellow Global HR practitioners

This is a sample learning overview that we can design and deliver specifically for your organisation.

As many HR practitioners evolve from domestic human resource management to global human resource management there are several skills that need to be acquired and adaptations need to be made in order to overcome major challenges and manage a geographically dispersed workforce.

Through an on-site seminar, we can enable you to examine the impact of your firm’s international expansion on your people management strategies.

HR practitioners who operate in the global arena will benefit from the insight the seminar will provide on the impact of global expansion on HR practices. In particular the programme will explore the initial considerations HR need to make when expanding across borders for the first time or moving into new jurisdictions. The programme will then review the next steps for managing the workforce from recruitment to cultural awareness to techniques for managing workers remotely.

Participants will:

  • Be able to develop an international recruitment strategy and conduct international workforce planning
  • Discover tactics for managing a workforce remotely
  • Review your policies to meet the demands of a global workforce
