NOT ENOUGH TO SPEAK ENGLISH
Large parts of the world are learning to speak English, which improves the possibility of successful communication. But that doesn’t change the fact that there are still very different cultural codes that need to be broken. Danish companies will come into contact with more and more markets in the future. So different language and cultural understanding is an important parameter that can be costly to overlook.
A phone call to France, an email to China or a meeting with a customer from Germany. Many companies live in an international world. This can be exciting and rewarding, but sometimes frustrating if you are not familiar with the cultures and business culture of the different countries. Here our workshops in culture help with “What NOT to do” – “Politeness phrases” – “Good conversation topics” – “Fun facts” – “Values” all of which have great value to know and are therefore much in demand in our courses.
When you come from different cultures, small things can suddenly have a big impact. They can not only cost orders and create friction between employees. It can also mean missing out on the many business benefits of working with people from many cultures.
PREPARATION FOR ENTRY AND EXIT
Being able to communicate with foreign companies is important in itself. Language is also the key to understanding a country’s culture.
It can cost companies dearly when a lack of understanding of other cultures costs international orders and contracts. Many Danish companies with an international presence often choose to offer employees and possibly. spouses and children language and cultural awareness courses. As in all contexts in life, it is important to have a good and solid background in order to perform and function optimally That is why it is so important that the family during a posting thrives, the spouse can get along in the foreign culture and cope linguistically in everyday life, the children can keep up in school both linguistically and socially. A well-prepared secondment can bring tangible results to your company’s presence abroad.
