Support the success of an international assignment for your company, the assignee, and his or her family by identifying employee and family competencies and readiness for assignment abroad. Then ease their adjustment and enable their success from the outset of an assignment to its conclusion – our personalized Cross-Cultural Coaching programs ensure that your employees have the knowledge, insight and guidance to develop skills to perform more effectively in different cultural surroundings and to manage the transition for themselves and their family. Cartus offers assignment-related intercultural programs across the globe and in multiple languages. Specific services include Candidate Assessment and Assignment Readiness; Cross-Cultural Coaching for Assignees and their Spouse/Partner; specialized programs for children; and Repatriation Coaching to support your returning assignees and your return on investment.
Language training is integral to success in an international setting and critical to building an inclusive work environment where the voice of all of your global talent is heard. Cartus specializes in preparing learners to thrive in a second language immersion setting, which is different than building long-term skill. As such, our programs focus on just-in-time preparation for high priority communication tasks in the second language as defined by each learner, not on driving through pre-set material. Programs are designed to meet the specific needs of international assignees, family members, business travelers, and other non-relocating individuals – to build their confidence for communicating, building relationships, and preparing them for success in new environments. Through our global network of language coaches, we ensure training capability for nearly all local languages around the world. Our comprehensive language training includes general language skill development, Business English, and advanced Global Business Communication Coaching programs, such as business writing, presentation skills coaching and accent modification. Our distinctive, highly tailored learner-centered and coach-facilitated training is focused on real-life language goals, available both in person and online.
