Multinational Employees With A “Global Mindset” Perform Better

SHRM | December 20, 2018

Multinational employees with a "global mindset" typically perform better than those that don't have the same focus. A global mindset is the ability to recognize and reflexively adjust to cultural signals so that an individual's effectiveness is not compromised when dealing with people from different backgrounds, according to CultureWizard's Global Mindset Index Study created by RW3, a firm that provides culturally-based training solutions. The study, conducted with market-research firm Seymour Insights, surveyed 1,362 business professionals worldwide, and also found that companies that demonstrate a commitment to intercultural skills are far more likely to achieve their most important strategic and business priorities than companies that do not. For respondents at companies that achieved or exceeded their business targets (deemed "overachievers" in the study), 84 percent say their organization recognizes different cultural values and preferences in business activities. This compares to only 26 percent of respondents at "underachieving" companies who could say that.
