Cross-Cultural Challenges in Global Mobility

The role of culture–traversing individual, societal, organisational, and national spheres continues to be recognised as a key challenge in global mobility by practitioners and scholars alike. By drawing upon his extensive field-research comprised of approximately 400 interviews with expatriates, managers, and workers in Brazil, Bulgaria, China (Mainland), Egypt, Hong Kong SAR, Myanmar, Norway, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and USA, Professor David S. A. Guttormsen will highlight several areas of cross-cultural challenges that both hamper and enable intra-organisational global mobility.
