    Understanding The 3 Tenets of Company Growth: Culture, Language, and Identity

    Companies of all sizes are hiring people anywhere in the world, but many of them are transferring existing processes and policies to a new country or region without understanding the local laws, employee expectations, and cultural differences, and this will simply not do when it comes to growth.  

    Join a live panel session to learn about how to create strong relationships with colleagues and customers across the globe, and also you will learn: 

    • Why talent retention and growth start as early as the first interview and into the onboarding process.  
    • How communication has to change and become asynchronous in the era of remote work.
