Mobile workforce diversity, equity, and inclusion: online courses

Managing a distributed workforce composed of long-term and short-term expatriates, locally hired foreigners, international remote workers, commuters and frequent business travelers requires careful management of inclusion issues.

New forms of assignments and new work setups open up new opportunities for women and minorities to participate in the mobile workforce. However, in the absence of an inclusive culture and career equity, these opportunities might not materialize. The risk of mobile or virtual workers to fall by the wayside and become perpetual outsiders is real.

Why you need to address cultural and inclusion biases

Companies that have the right technology and setup but ignore cultural and inclusion biases eventually face dissatisfaction from both employees and management. Ultimately, this means a smaller mobile talent pool, higher costs due to limited number of candidates, as well as retention and productivity issues.

On the other hand, organizations that integrate DEI factors into their thinking can increase the success of international assignments and the productivity of their employees working remotely.
