On the 27th and the 28th of November, Itim International, HR Boosters and NABC offer you a two-day training on HR Approaches in Sub-Sahara Africa.
The training focuses on the understanding of the following HR systems in SSA: job descriptions, conflict management, talent management, performance management, succession management and career management including their intercultural implications.
By the end of the training, participants are able to understand and act upon the HR systems in SSA mentioned above including the underlying cross-cultural reasons and logic.
According to the Economist Intelligent Unit, 70% of international ventures that fail, do so due to cultural misunderstandings.
For more information, there will be an informative webinar on the 11th of November at 2 pm (CET): Sign up here.
