Creating a welcoming environment for new immigrant hires allows you to introduce additional professional development opportunities such as:
- Providing specific information and training that addresses cross-cultural differences in business norms. For example, forms of address and meeting customs.
- Offering internal mentoring, perhaps with a member who shares new employee’s cultural background. With an ally who understands their situation better, the new hire may adapt much more quickly. Mentoring is also a good way for existing staff to gain cross-cultural competencies.
These practices can strengthen your entire organization.
