Intercultural training provides the introduction to the norms, traditions, and etiquette of a foreign culture that is crucial to success in global business. CORE Languages’ intercultural training programs help employees and their families conduct themselves respectfully and confidently in cross-cultural settings, which in turn helps businesses thrive. Clients often choose to bundle intercultural training with language training programs to maximize international competencies.
CORE’s intercultural training offerings are proven to support corporate functioning by contributing to long-term employee retention; enhanced experiences when expatriating or working with international clients; and higher yield rates when expanding services to a new target population. For employees and their families relocating to a new community, intercultural training reduces the anxiety and cultural shock that is common for expatriates, and provides them with an opportunity to have their questions and concerns addressed.
