Course Details

Sending staff on overseas assignments is a growing need for organizations wishing to become players in the global economy. Benefits include gaining a foothold in new markets, strengthening presence in existing markets, and bringing in new perspectives and cultural competence. However, training leadership, managerial and operational staff for overseas assignments is a complex task. This practical course is designed to help attendees better understand the employee relocation process, gain awareness of the best expatriate management trends and practices, and build an international assignment program that reflects the organization's needs. Incorporating lectures, discussions, and practical role plays, this course is best suited for human resources personnel, regional managers, and those who have been or hope to be chosen for foreign assignments.
