You've recruited international talent. You've implemented strategies to retain them. Now how do you navigate the daily ins and outs of mixing nationalities at the office?

It can be small things: mispronouncing a word, using an archaic form, putting together phrases in funny ways. “I think I’ll go to the sandwich office for lunch.” Sometimes it’s a bit bigger: not being up-to-date on Belgian politics, being completely unaware of the importance a team lunch. Every now and then it can be more serious: an ignorance of office etiquette or a business faux pas.

All these little moments add up to a dynamic office space, even if there can be misunderstandings. If you harness this dynamic, while reducing the severity of the misunderstandings, of course, you can reach greater heights then ever. Why? Because the strength of a diverse team is the key to tackling the challenges of the future. Everything from digital solutions to healthy office spaces will be solved through mobilizing a heterogenous work force.

Ivie Cardinaels has done the research and crunched the numbers and is here to tell us that we’ve everything to gain from utilizing our international office spaces to their fullest. She’s ready to show you the tools you need to make the most of your expat talent at the office.
