Build teams of people who work well with anyone—from anywhere.

Give your employees the tools to communicate and collaborate effectively with people from different backgrounds and cultures.

Work and life are global. Your employees need to understand cultural differences, both abroad and at home. That understanding will be the difference between success or failure for your organization.

Cultural competence is a journey. We’ll help you plan every step so that you succeed—wherever you are.

Set a cultural competence benchmark

How do you know you’re improving if you can’t measure your growth? We use a suite of proprietary assessments, such as the Global Team Assessment, to quantify your team’s cultural competence. These assessments turn gut feelings into measurable, reportable metrics.

Kia Motors transplanted management and company culture from South Korea to Mexico when they opened their sixth vehicle production plant. Aperian Global worked with 400 Kia employees from both South Korea and Mexico to improve team trust, establish cultural understanding, and develop a shared vision.

[The 30-day learning journey] resulted in clearer communication across our global teams, as well as notably fewer style conflicts. This program leads to real behavior change.
