CPI Globe

Smart companies invest time and energy to understand how to retain critical talent

Career Partners International (CPI), a global career management consulting firm, offers advice on engaging a global workforce. Working Transitions, CPI’s UK Partner, discusses the challenges that global companies face in today’s talent market.

The global market has changed the way companies need to operate and the policies they put in place. It is even more important to engage employees and support their development in a global operation due to the inherent cultural differences with team members resident in multiple countries. This initiative is challenging; smart companies invest time and energy to understand how to retain critical talent.

There are solutions to engage and support employees on a global scale: onboarding, global fluency and change management training as well as personalized career development. Onboarding, which typically takes place during the employees' first few months, begins with the employees' introduction to the global company and the policies and programs. Formal onboarding can produce stronger retention rates and more clarity about cultural and organizational norms. Focusing on continual development for employees, through organized career plans and management, reinvests employees to their current job and increases their potential for leadership positions. Change management, which is even more difficult, can be achieved through transparency and effective communications.

“With an ever-changing global workforce,” says Lynne Hardman, Managing Director of Career Partners International in the United Kingdom, “global companies need to be more innovative to engage a global workforce.”
