Episode Description

The buzz: “49% of employees feel that a future in which people will ‘work from anywhere in the world’ is now” (ADP “The Evolution of Work” 2016). Reality check: Your company can’t be global without being local. What is your CHRO's role in this? HR needs to understand and comply with local and global cultures, practices and regulations – recruiting, interviewing, hiring and compensation – while supporting a globalized business with a local feel. Say what? The experts speak. Nicole Sahin, Globalization Partners: “For the first time in human evolution … the individual mind is now a constituent player in the global transformation of human culture” (William Irwin Thompson). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark … there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves” (Carl Sagan). Join us for HR, Globalization, and Localization: More than Meets the Eye – Part 2.
