HR Manager

As an HR manager you face different challenges when hiring international talent. Of course, the ‘traditional expats’ who is sent on an assignment of 3-5 years need your attention, but there are also more and more self-initiated expats that are hired directly in the host country. Especially small and medium sized companies might not have a lot of experience with supporting these international employees. With my research, I hope to help you in supporting your international talent in certain specific challenges. My work mainly focuses on how companies can help expats build a new social network in their host country, how they can facilitate contacts between expats and locals in the workplace, and how employees – both expats and locals – can develop intercultural competences to facilitate working together with people from different cultural backgrounds.
