We help you to understand India far beyond a list of do's and donts. We help you to identify where cultural differences are having an impact on your success, what the foundation of the cultural difference is, and how to resolve differences that affect communication, workflow, and progress.
With a vast and complex culture, India can be a difficult place for a westerner to adjust. The Brookfield Global Relocation Survey listed India as one of the top three most challenging locations for international assignees and mobility program managers. Of the 34 nations reviewed in the HSBC Expat Explorer Survey, India ranked as the third most difficult place to adapt to local work culture.
Even for short term assignments, business travel, and remote assignments; cultural differences can distract from objectives, skew expectations, and cause missed deadlines and squandered resources. Preparing for those cultural differences is an essential part of working in or with India.
Compared to the cost of an international assignment, cultural preparation can provide an incredible value. In fact, 85% of respondents surveyed in the Brookfield GRS rated cross-cultural preparation as having a great or good value for international assignee success.
