A growing number of organizations have team members stationed in Asia. Sometimes they are local hires, other times they are workers from other countries on long- or short-term assignment or business travelers. Regardless of the source of labor and duration of the assignment, HR has the responsibility for selecting the people with the right competencies and fit, keeping them focused on the organization's mission, ensuring they are safe, and enabling the productivity of that workforce. In this program, Dr. Lisbeth Claus of Willamette University will discuss some of the challenges for managing Asia-based workers, with an emphasis on three specific locations: China, India and the Arab Gulf countries. She will also look at the cultural challenges international assignees (and their dependents) face in these countries and discuss leading practices for ensuring a successful global assignment.
