Despite the rise of China, the U.S. continues to play the dominant role in the world’s economy; its companies span the globe, its technical excellence powers the next generation of products and its cultural influence continues to be felt in every corner of the globe.
The pre-eminent position of the U.S.A in global business makes it imperative that people gain a deeper insight into the way business is conducted in the States. What drives people and how do people interact in a commercial setting? We all think we know the Sates – but do we really?
Global Business Culture has been running cross-cultural awareness training sessions on the U.S.A. for two decades, but we realise that we cannot reach everybody with our face-to-face interventions and that technology allows us to address a much wider audience through the power of digital technology.
Therefore, we have developed a comprehensive cultural awareness training digital learning hub, Global Business Compass, which we feel is a great back-up to the ‘live’ training events we run as well as allowing our clients to offer quality cross-cultural training interventions to a geographically dispersed workforce.
The digital hub is packed with a variety of informative learning offerings which also include a series of country-specific online business courses on:
The digital learning hub and the U.S.A. cultural awareness training programme within it are aimed at all employees who work in a global environment and who have the need to work smarter and more effectively with colleagues, clients and other stakeholders around the world. As a 24/7 resource people are able to dip in and out of the hub on an ‘as needs’ basis helping an organisation deliver appropriate and targeted training on a just-in-time basis.
The U.S.A.-specific cultural awareness training programme includes:
As well as the country-specific cultural awareness online business courses outlined above, Global Business Compass also includes:
