Workplace Application:
You will learn how the competency of Global and Cultural Effectiveness is being impacted by the ebb in globalization. 

The decades old trend toward further globalization seems to be in retreat. What is the impact on the practice of global HR? Is international experience more or less relevant than in the past? How can HR practitioners with international responsibilities adapt to the ever changing attitudes toward diversity in an international context. This session will cover:

  • How reverse globalization is impacting the practice of HR - everywhere.
  • What is the impact on the competency of Global & Cultural Effectiveness.
  • How can advocates for cultural intelligence/wisdom better position the business case for a global mindset.
