    Business success today often hinges on a company's ability to bridge cultural differences and build a productive, cohesive workforce spanning multiple countries. Understanding these challenges is the first step towards preparing for them and leveraging them for competitive advantage. This session will provide an overview of today's global workforce, the impact of cultural diversity on this global workforce and the HR strategies needed to succeed in it. It will also look at global and cultural expertise as a key HR competency and important support resources to help HR professionals navigate this area.

    Learning objectives: 

    • Understand the changing global workforce and the impact on culture
    • Define the key areas where development for HR leaders differs from development of other leaders.
    • Describe the key approaches to business and professional development that will close the gap
