7 in 10 companies have cross-cultural teams to manage workers
Many Singapore companies have cross-cultural teams in place to manage a more diverse workforce in their organisations.
This is according to a survey of 63 companies released today from global human resource consultant Towers Watson.
7 in 10 of the companies polled have such infrastructure.
However, slightly less than half have processes to identify employees who are internationally mobile.
Fewer companies have programmes available to train managers to manage cross-cultural teams.
Only about a quarter of them have such structures in place.
Towers Watson indicate that companies develop cross-cultural teams, processes and training programmes to ensure they have the right talent mix to meet business objectives.
The Towers Watson survey is part of a larger study of 1,605 companies in the Asia-Pacific region, from both developed and fast growing markets.
