San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Aperian Global, a leading provider of consulting, training, and web tools for global talent development, today announced that Worldwide ERC®, the workforce mobility association, has selected GlobeSmart® as one of the intercultural tools available to its members.
GlobeSmart is an online tool that provides ready access to detailed information on how to conduct business effectively with people from around the world. Developed from extensive research and interviews with business people from over 68 countries, GlobeSmart content is organized into more than 50 continuously updated topics for each country, related to business skills and work styles, culture and customs, travel and general information, and names and phrases.
A key component of GlobeSmart is the GlobeSmart Assessment Profile (GAP). The GAP provides specific advice, based on a user’s preferred work style, to bridge gaps with other cultures and colleagues. The GAP shows users how they compare with the average profile from another country, and it can be used comparatively with individual colleagues and teams.
Worldwide ERC also selected Aperian Global’s Learning Paths, which will allow its members to avail themselves of various learning assets such as webcasts, video clips, PDFs, e-learning modules or links to sections of GlobeSmart.
“Just as employers continually seek new and cost-effective ways to assess global talent and maximize assignment ROI, we are constantly looking for opportunities to deliver cutting-edge information and resources to our members to support them. With the addition of GlobeSmart, Worldwide ERC has expanded the dimension of relevant intercultural resources to support our members’ work in the global market,” said Worldwide ERC President and CEO, Peggy Smith, SCRP, SGMS.
Current Worldwide ERC members can access GlobeSmart at http://www.worldwideerc.org/Resources/Pages/InterculturalTools.aspx.
