Cross-Cultural Training

Cross-cultural training gives you the knowledge, skills and awareness to work effectively across cultures.

Are you regularly travelling abroad for business or relocating employees overseas? Do you work as part of an international team?

Research shows that a lack of understanding when it comes to business etiquette impacts a company’s reputation, with 62% of business travellers confirming that etiquette errors affect a company’s bottom line. Half of business travellers (49%) are worried that they will unknowingly offend a client or business associate.

Avoid Cultural Errors with Cross-Cultural Training

Cultural awareness training helps you avoid costly cultural mistakes and increases the effectiveness of intercultural communication.

Our cultural training solutions for employees include cultural competency training, cultural shock training, intercultural communication training and social etiquette training to help you build strong global working relationships.

Increase the Success of International Assignments

Research shows that 20 to 50% of workers posted overseas return early, at a cost of £250,000 each to their employers.

Cross-cultural training helps employees and their families overcome culture shocks and adjust to their new country of residence, thereby reducing the risk of a failed assignment.

These are some of the programmes we can offer:

Many thanks Alex this translation looks spot on and to the standard I was hoping for.

Legal Counsel (International financial trading company)

You have always been tremendously customer focused, listening to our needs and matching them greatly with the right teachers. You have been a good observer as well and when I was just about to drop German because of my busy schedule, you found a new teacher who could provide a different method, encouragement and keep me going.

Chano Fernandez (Co-President , Workday)

Adrian did a fantastic job despite the short time period I had. As I was located in Miami, we used Skype to manage lessons. I not only learnt a great deal but I enjoyed the lessons too. I have no hesitation in recommending Robertson.
