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. An insight into another culture also challenges thought processes and can foster a better understanding of other people in general.
For you as an employer, signaling ambition to integrate your employees attracts new talent. Talents that are more likely to stay in Sweden if they gain a better understanding of how to handle everyday interactions and feel a sense of belonging to society.
Many of our clients choose to include this workshop in their introduction for new, non-Swedish, employees. As all of our services, the workshop can be customized to your need.
