CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE (CQ) AND RECRUITMENT

"The Romans thought of themselves as the chosen people, yet they built the greatest army on Earth by recruiting warriors from any background."

---- Amy Chua

What is cultural intelligence and does your recruiter have it?

When it comes to global business the world is our market.  Our competition is global, when we collaborate we often do so globally, so it should come as no surprise that when recruiting, the world is our market, our competition and our potential talent pool.  

Multinational organisations often prefer to select candidates who are comfortable in this global world. Some organisations have the flexibility to place a role in varying locations around the world and will benefit from knowing which has the best talent pool.  

With areas of the world trending towards nationalism and isolation, some recruiters may not have this global understanding.  They may prefer to search for candidates close to home, but doing so limits the talent you can choose from.  At the same time, not all candidates will have the ability to work well in all markets.

If you want to make sure that the recruiter searching to fill your roles is skilled to deal with a global market tune into this webinar to identify some of the challenges of recruiting across a global market and to learn how a recruiter with high cultural intelligence is more likely to manage the challenge well.
