CSR-Field of Action "Workplace"
Employees are the most important resources of a company. By working in a different country, employees deepen their knowledge of the country, culture and people, and gain an understanding of operations outside the "home" company. Diversity and internationality strengthen the company. It is all the more important that the foreign postings be well planned so that these employees can start working without complications in the host country.
CSR and its elements are often perceived and lived differently, not only in companies, but also by us, which can be felt in the coexistence of people of different backgrounds, mentality and culture. Occasionally this can lead to difficulties. For example, many of us love foreign food, but if it is e.g. cooked daily in the immediate neighbourhood, you may feel bothered by the unfamiliar aroma. Values can be viewed differently - e.g., the time factor. Punctuality does not always have the same status as in Germany. How do you react fairly to all participants, if fairness is a value, too?
Solution: CSR + Relocation
Companies can provide secureness at the beginning of a foreign posting by employing a relocation specialist. Even during a posting, companies can, with the help of relocation specialists, organise joint workshops, courses, or activities for both their home and foreign employees, in which they learn to understand each other better and lay the foundations for good integration.
