How Your Company Benefits

The Global Readiness Development Assessment is a strategic program for any company looking to boost its global leadership capabilities among key employees. It can be conducted for any employees needing a developmental roadmap for cultural competence and leadership. Within global mobility, this assessment typically happens months before an assignment needs to commence, allowing for employee development (or alternate employee selection) to occur. With the program, organizations will get:

  • Support for high-value employees and HR, providing a leadership and professional development plan to enhance competence for global agility
  • Alignment of our Global Readiness Model to your organization’s existing competency framework
  • Benchmark data informing employee selection
  • Talent retention: Increased employee engagement and awareness
  • Improved productivity and retention from information, focused on the critical competencies needed to perform well in a global role or assignment

Built from five decades of intercultural research, the Global Readiness Development Assessment is a multifaceted process consisting of cultural assessments, behavioral interview, facilitated debrief, and developmental report for employee and HR.

Methods and sources of data: 
  • Validated Survey Instruments, including the Global Competencies Inventory (GCI) and GlobeSmart Profile
  • A Behavioral Interview, taking place virtually over one, 2-hour session
  • Delivery of a customized, detailed Developmental Report
