FGIworld, a North American-based provider of employee and employer support services worldwide, is pleased to announce that it will be delivering TMCÂs (Training Management Corporation) Cultural Navigator online tool to its clients.
The growing diversity and mobility of todayÂs workforce creates cross-cultural challenges and opportunities in every work environment. The Cultural Navigator is a cutting edge technology platform that provides access to a wide range of content, training, and best practice. It is designed to help business people develop awareness of various cultural behaviours and attitudes and to understand how these elements impact management style, expectations and practices. The Cultural Navigator is now available within FGIworldÂs suite of services, to all FGIworld clients who wish to enhance the development of employees and managers working across time zones, geography, language and cultures.
Louise OÂGrady, Vice President, Global Services for FGIworld, said that, ÂWeÂre very excited about adding this valuable resource to our suite of Cross-Cultural Solutions. It enables us to provide effective blended learning options to maximize the effectiveness of the culturally diverse workforce. Users can generate their own cultural profile and access an extensive database of country-specific management information on more than 100 countries Â all via the Internet. The competitive advantage of this tool is that it allows an organizationÂs employees to develop action plans to improve their business interactions in a cross-cultural context, no matter where theyÂre located or the cross-cultural make-up of the environment theyÂre working in. Taking a consistent approach to global diversity and multiculturalism can close competency gaps across all levels of an organization.Â
