The last 18 months have shown how fast and dramatically
the business landscape can change.
In reality, the last 15 years have seen one disruption after another: recessions, technological developments, social unrest, the rise of remote work, overnight changes to regulations and government policies...and that's just in the US!
HR pros at multinational companies must navigate constant changes to global markets while providing excellent support to their employees and adding value to the company's bottom line.
Trends change every day.
Build a strategy of adaptability to tackle any of them.
In 2020 and 2021, we've heard a great deal about remote work, hybrid models, up-skilling, worker shortages and employee wellness—and that only scratches the surface.
With the up-and-down swings of the pandemic, trends will continue to shift quickly and suddenly. So quickly, in fact, that if you've identified a new trend, there's a good chance that you've already missed your opportunity to get ahead. To navigate these changes and the evolving needs of your company, develop adaptable strategies that allow you to pivot quickly.
You need the capability to adapt quickly to
beat out the competition for the best international talent.
We call this agility. It's the third pillar of our international expansion framework called Global Fluency.
Highly agile organizations use in-country knowledge (intellect) and data capabilities (acumen) to make timely, informed strategy decisions that put them ahead of competitors.
To expand internationally and compete for top global talent, don't just focus on the latest trends; focus on developing sound strategy that can be adjusted quickly based on new data and changes in the organization or the market.
Global Fluency is a measure of an organizations ability to
expand globally and attract the best international talent.
