Human Capital, Talent & Leadership Development

Each market, its environment and its talent is unique. The MENA region has not only the world’s fastest growing population but also one of the youngest. As companies try to deal with global talent shortages, the MENA region offers talent, but one needs to translate how to manage, develop and retain it.

The meaning of HR is different not only across countries in the EU, but also in emerging markets, where the meaning of “competence” can translate directly to “loyalty” and “relationships”. Therefore, we provide individual solutions to assist international companies and expatriates in gaining a better understanding of intercultural awareness and communication in the markets in which they operate. They learn to manage and lead culturally diverse teams, to identify, attract and retain key talents in new markets, and to understand intercultural dimensions of networks and levels of competence.
