Cultural understanding is important in order to navigate both professional and personal life in a new country. In the multicultural setting of an increasingly global market, intercultural communication becomes very important. A sense of cultural knowledge improves internal and external communication, improves understanding of customer behavior and can enhance team spirit. Insight into another culture also challenges the thought process and can foster a better understanding of other people in general.
As an employer, signaling an ambition to integrate your employees into Swedish culture will attract new talent. This talent will then be more likely to stay in Sweden as they develop a better understanding of how to handle everyday interactions while gaining a sense of belonging to Swedish society.
Many of our clients choose to include this workshop into their introduction for new, non-Swedish, employees. Like all of our services, the workshop can be customized to suit your needs.
