International expansions and global roll-outs have become striking reality in any business. HR operations are increasingly digitalised with a strong desire for global standardisation. However, HR practices from one country cannot be simply replicated to other geographical regions. They need to combine global consistency with local relevance respecting diverse cultural values and local regulatory requirements. Success is achieved by those who act confidentially in a global context.
In our international DGFP//Kompetenzforum, we will discuss how to meet the right balance between centralisation and decentralisation enabling both standardisation and the right amount of diversity. In some cases, a centralised approach, in others, local approaches will be more effective. Which level of common global standards in HR is appropriate? How can a global roll-out succeed with strong buy-in from relevant stakeholders across the globe? What is needed to lead and manage effectively multinational teams?
Join a lively debate with international perspectives, learn from experts and practitioners how to ensure long-lasting global change, and think out of the box in our interactive breakout sessions!
