There are many intercultural challenges faced in an international assignment. Dr Fritz Audebert, CEO and founder of German company ICUnet.AG, explains the need for intercultural understanding in the relocation process.
An apartment in a prime location, complete with a large garden and a playground for the children, would probably be seen by many as an ideal place to live during an international assignment.
However, a dream location for one foreign employee moving to a new country can be a complete nightmare for another.
Intercultural challenges in the relocation process
To become involved with new people from different cultures on a regular basis is part of a relocating employee’s everyday life but making the right accommodation choices and getting accustomed to a new home is another important part.
Trust is the key for intercultural integration
From the very first moments, successful intercultural integration depends on your life experience and, of course, intercultural competence and sensitivity. ICUnet.AG offers an intercultural hotline for emergencies, to ensure that intercultural challenges in the relocation process can be tackled quickly and efficiently.
