Angela Weinberger, Zurich; Intercultural Career Advisor; Global Mobility Expert Founder & Managing Director, Global People Transitions
INTERVIEW / CONVERSATION CONTENT OUTLINE 1) Globalized world; Why do you think international assignments are still a necessity? 2) Your 2020 vision for the Global Mobility function? 3) Best advice/tip for future expats; Accept/Reject an international assignment? 4) Why do you enjoy to work in this field? 5) Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle as a basis for communication 6) Storytelling 7) YOU are not 'the brand' ANGELA WEINBERGER Intercultural Career Advisor Global Mobility Expert Founder & Managing Director, Global People Transitions GmbH email firstname.lastname@example.org Book your first 1:1 session http://globalpeopletransitions.com/schedule-a-meeting/ +41791922877 twitter follow @GPTransitions Why buy? Once merely a subset of HR but now its own critical department in most organizations, Global Mobility is currently undergoing a global transformation. New technologies, the constant evolution of companies, generational diversity and political situations have evolved the roles and lives of mobile professionals faster than existing policies can keep up, calling for a clear focus on the processes to be updated to cater better for the people driving Global Mobility. Are you as a Global Mobility Professional feeling overwhelmed by the speed and scope of this ‘boom’? Perhaps you need to introduce yourself to the field and get a better, broader overview of Global Mobility. Maybe you are in HR or a line manager and want to ensure that you are becoming an employer of choice for younger generations demanding Global Mobility as a prerequisite for working with you. Or, you are just on the brink of deciding for or against an international assignment as an expat or expat family and want to understand the language we use better. Let us help you! How we will help you? Working with Angie Weinberger will enable you to: run your Global Mobility in a more strategic way by deeper understanding trends and drivers of Global Mobility, develop and sort out your legal framework, policies, guidelines, exception management, give you models for improving how you explain what we do to the outside world, support expats and their spouses and enhance their “Expat Experience” through training, coaching and deeper understanding of the psychological effects of cultural adjustment, develop your professional profile and “Global Competency”. In order to make the expat experience worthwhile for their careers and support for their families even better, it takes people who want more than ticking off a checklist. It takes dedicated professionals and it needs personal communication with the entire expat family. We want to bring the human touch back into our process-driven work. That is just the tip of what Global Mobility truly is, provides not only a baseline starting point to understanding the field but is a hands-on manual for people in HR, line managers, expats and their spouses.

In today’s increasingly interconnected global economy, Topia is the partner that can help you simplify mobility and navigate the complexities inherent to a worldwide mobile workforce. Our goal is to provide you with the automated tools and data necessary to make smart strategic decisions across the relocation landscape." ARAGON RESEARCH - "Today, enterprises are faced with the reality of a global economy, where countries are connected by the internet and transcend traditional borders. The complementary searches for talent and opportunities do not stop at state or national borders, and this is where mobile recruiting constraints, including cost, complexity, compliance, and cultural issues, come into play. Global Mobility Management (GMM) is an emerging category that covers the overall business process of people movement. Today, the process of moving people around is manual, time consuming, and highly frustrating to people being moved. Global Mobility Management platforms help automate and digitize what has historically been a manual and non- automated process. The ability to make faster, evidence- based mobility management decisions will provide a competitive advantage for early adopters of GMM platforms. Discover how Global Mobility Management platforms are changing the future of work."

Dr Ken Oehler, Kincentric – Leader; Culture & Engagement Practice
We discussed... What is eX? Why is it so important? Important elements to consider in designing your employee experience? What moments matter during the "life-cycle"? Best practices? Role of culture and engagement Strategy - Continuous Dialog - Delivery VUCA world HR readiness Employee eXperience Pitfalls to Avoid Published in LinkedIn, October 21, 2019 Despite significant interest, the large majority of organizations continue to struggle with their employee eXperience (eX) efforts due to insufficient attention to creating an intentional experience with purposeful transformation. In a recent post, I described lessons from the 28% of organizations from Kincentric's 2019 Global Employee eXperience Report who are delivering a differentiated eX. Starting with a solid strategy sets these extraordinary companies apart, and allows their continuous dialogue and eX delivery efforts to drive tangible value. Data from Kincentric's Global Employee eXperience Report also help highlight some common missteps to avoid. Top 5 eX strategy pitfalls: Get the “digital experience” really rocking by throwing all the latest HR technology apps at employees. Everyone’s using tech all the time and so many companies are focused on "going digital," so it's easy to think many new, cutting-edge apps are what the organization needs or what employees actually want. The reality is 80% of HR executives do not think they are effectively using cutting edge technology to improve the eX - and 40% of employees say that business technology is not supporting productivity. Sometimes the latest technology is still just a new thing to learn that employees did not ask for. Before implementing, leaders should carefully evaluate how a new app will actually enable, elevate, connect, or elegantly integrate with the many other technology applications employees have to manage. Move to a "continuous listening" approach with the same short engagement pulses on repeat. "Are you engaged? ...no? hmmm ...how about now?...still no? ...how about now? ...no?... Ok, thanks for your input." This type of "listening" would be very annoying in person, and can actually inadvertently damage the eX with the speed and scale that continuous pulsing technology offers. 8 out 10 companies are currently measuring engagement. Have we over-rotated, not on the topic, but on the metric itself? More effective pulsing approaches may involve targeting pulse questions to specific employee segments or specific topics/events to test hypotheses or cue certain actions. The most effective approaches will involve back and forth, follow up questions that are closer to real dialogue that leads to insight, understanding and action - technology can enable this or get in the way of this. Pulse more often with faster results and assume everyone will have the time and ability take meaningful action. Most managers struggle with the time and ability to successfully comprehend and take meaningful, enduring action on annual surveys. So, it seems unlikely that the same managers would not struggle with 4 times or 12 times the volume and rate of survey data. The data are clear - while most companies intend to measure more, and measure more frequently, 8 out of 10 HR leaders are concerned with manager capability and capacity to act. Many managers need significant help with basics of how survey data might help them, who will see it and how it will be used, and just plain finding the time to act. Then, maybe you can focus on the value of engagement and culture that will truly change their behavior over time. Don't worry too much about employee-centric design or behavior change. eX is all about the next wave of HR technology right? Think again. Consider a few HR programs from the manager's perspective. They don't like annual, compliance based programs (see the countless articles on blowing up performance management). They don't want to go into a website to post survey action plans.

How do we drive automation in HR? It all starts with a PRFAQ – starting from the customer and working backwards Review of PRFAQ – funding + creating of two pizza teams – use of Agile project methodology. Some innovative examples: Recruiting: At Amazon we recruit wage associates via Salesforce – how to address the problem of scaling Recruiting 30K employees without recruiters involved – we call it lights out People take a personality and capability test – and in some markets a language test. If they score above a certain threshold, they get automatically get an offer and they are being invited to the training class Nostradamus: named after Nostradamus was a French astrologer and reputed seer. Nostradamus is a Tool to predict attrition based on AI. We identified approx. 28 attributes that would predict if somebody was likely going to leave. The results and pilots surprised us – we had an accuracy of 70% and higher. We would then equip the team lead with a conversation to have a stay conversation with the employees that could be at risk. The stay interview is preferable to an exit interview because, in a stay interview, you ask current employees why they continue to work for your organization. At the exit interview, it's too late to identify and solve the problems. Chat Bot: tier 1 HR support – piloted in India for 30K Amazonians.

Mark Colo, findcures.org
Mark Colo Secretary Co-founder Director Mark is one of the four Founders of FINDcures. As a Parkinson’s patient, he is passionate about the FINDcures mission. Mark also has a history of volunteerism. In January 1977, while still a teenager, he volunteered to leave his home in sunny Southern California to serve for two years as a full-time missionary in the significantly colder climate of Scotland and Northern Ireland, during a period of that country’s intense civil unrest. Of serving others while as a missionary Mark says, “The greatest lesson I learned about serving my fellowman is the more I help others, the happier I am, and the greater sense of identity I come to recognize within myself. Giving of myself to others had the effect of lifting me above my moments of doubt, worry, and potholes of despair, to a higher plane of thought. Simply put, by losing myself in serving others, I found my true self.” While serving the wonderful people of Scotland and Northern Ireland, Mark began to form what became his top four credos of life. First, “The only constant is change. Embrace it.” Second,“If you think things can’t get worse, you’re wrong. Endure it.” Third, “Control is an illusion. Let go of it.” And fourth, “Life isn’t always fair. Accept it.” As fate would have it, these four concepts along with his undying faith in a loving God, have been a source of strength for him as he has dealt with the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. Mark provides a unique perspective to the FINDcures Leadership Team. He is intimately aware of the challenges an individual and family face when dealing with a neurological disease diagnosis. Professionally, Mark has had a very successful career in the van line industry since January, 1980. During his over 3 decades of experience in the relocation industry, he leveraged his passion for learning to become a Certified Relocation Professional (C.R.P.), of which there are less than 200 in the U.S. He is also a licensed California Real Estate Broker (R.E.B.). In addition, his dedication to client satisfaction resulted in him becoming a 5-time member of the United Masters Club, a distinction that put him in the top 5% of his peers nationwide. Over the course of his career, it has been estimated that Mark has relocated more than 15,000 families from and to all points in the United State and overseas. In his personal life, Mark enjoys spending time with his family, cycling, overseas travel, reading and furthering public awareness of Neurological Diseases. Why FINDcures? Mark’s back-story. Shortly following his 48th birthday, Mark noticed an unusual physical change. His right hand pinky finger had developed an almost unnoticeable resting tremor. He observed that it became more pronounced when he conducted a meeting or gave a talk in church. “Speaking in front of groups with a few hundred members might seem like enough to make anyone’s hands shake, but only my right hand was affected.” He told himself that this must be due to a pinched nerve or spinal irregularity. This unique event prompted him to make an appontment post haste to see his general MD. His recommendation was that he meet with a neurologist. The neurologist performed a series of tests that included electro-analysis and observing him walking down a hallway. His diagnosis on that day was he felt his sysmptoms were pre-Parkinsonian. Mark left the neurologist’s office in a daze of disbelief. When he left the doctor’s office he felt as though the weight of the world had just been placed upon his shoulders. He felt profound sadness and also bitterness for this added burden that had been handed to him. His mind began spinning to the past in search for answers, and into the future imagining what his life would be like. Loneliness, fear and doubt, began to creep into his thoughts. This was without exception the greatest blow to his peace of mind and sense of self-worth, that he had ever experienced.
