HR, Globalization, and Localization: More than Meets the Eye?

March 2, 2017 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: “We live in a global village. No country can live in isolation of others like Robinson Crusoe.” (Li Keqiang)

The new reality for business: you can’t be global without being local. What does that mean for your CHRO?

One of your first considerations is transactional: compliance to local customers, to local and global business regulations, to legal practices – all within local and industry best practices.

What if you fail to comply? You may put yourself at risk of being shut down by a country that says you didn’t do something right.

The key challenge is how HR can create a brand-based experience that translates policy to practice, while keeping people at the center of globalized business with a local feel.

The experts speak.

Nicole Sahin, Globalization Partners: “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” (Henry Miller)

Barbara Ocain, SAP SuccessFactors: “Do what you can with what you have where you are.” (Squire Bill Widener quoted by President Teddy Roosevelt)
