Inter-Cultural Programs to establish Understanding & Appreciation for other Cultures

Supporting international talent's integration into a new environment is a key challenge for organizations. The Globibo cultivation, and integration programs include all key components to support the integration process.

Globalization has enabled multinational corporations (MNCs) to operate in a growing number of different markets, both locally and abroad. Engaging in international operations demands extensive logistics. Companies must ensure that their staff, especially the deployed talents, are recognized and have a positive image. The deployed staff will have to perform new job requirements and adapt to changes in their family lives while adjusting to the new cultural and linguistic environment. Different cultures can mean different interaction/communicative skills in dealing with conflict, etc.

We provide fully individualized virtual cross-cultural training and cultivation instruction to help you communicate more effectively with people from various cultural backgrounds. For Europeans moving to Asia or Asians moving to Europe, Singapore represents a particularly enriching cultural stopover, helping them with Asia cross-cultural training.
