MUCH MORE THAN JUST PHOTOS: CROSS-CULTURAL TRAINING FOR KONICA MINOLTA
As an IT specialist, Konica Minolta Business Solutions is a leading provider of company-wide document and print workflows in the B2B sector. The overall corporation, which operates according to the company motto “Giving Shape to Ideas”, spans the fields of business technologies, healthcare and industrial products. The parent company is represented by subsidiaries in 49 countries worldwide. Because of this international orientation, cooperation between various cultures is extremely important in Konica Minolta’s day-to-day business.
The company has worked intensively and very successfully with Eidam & Partner since 2008. Over the course of our collaboration, we’ve conducted numerous cross-cultural trainings on cooperation between Germany and Japan, among other things.
Jörg Libal, the head of the Konica Minolta Academy, had this to say about our partnership: “The Konica Minolta Academy wants to offer its customers outstanding trainings with a strict focus on practical know-how. In Eidam & Partner we’ve found a competent and professional training partner that can help us realize these goals.”
culture is multicolored: trainings for siegwerk
Siegwerk Druckfarben ranks among the world’s leading printing ink producers. Every day, around 4,800 employees in more than 30 nations develop individual solutions in line with the corporate maxim “Ink, Heart & Soul”. Europe is the company’s most important market, but business is constantly growing in the emerging regions of Asia and Latin America. As an internationally active corporation, contact with other cultures is an important component of everyday business for Siegwerk.
That’s why the company has been collaborating with Eidam & Partner in the field of cross-cultural education for three years now. During this time, numerous employees have been successfully prepared for their assignments abroad. Target countries have included China, Malaysia, Singapore, India and the USA, among others.
For us, cross-cultural trainings are not just ordinary seminars on the theme of "soft skills". We're of the opinion that cross-cultural competence is an indispensable basis for the international success of any company. A cross-cultural coaching, a cultural awareness training or the preparation for an international assignment should therefore not only contain scientific theories. We place a high value on the impartation of practicable knowledge on the business world of your target countries.
Our cross-cultural training on China, for example, goes specifically into how you have to guide negotiations and lead meetings there. Our cross-cultural training on the USA, however, has to consider completely different requirements when handling the same themes. Our cross-cultural trainings and coachings thereby form an important building block on the path to your workforce's success abroad.
Moreover, to sustainably optimize the cross-cultural competence of your employees, we use a lot of interactive methods in our trainings and preparation measures for international assignments. The cross-cultural trainers from Eidam & Partner most certainly don't hold eight-hour lectures for you; rather, they win your participants hearts and minds with an authentic cross-cultural training including practical exercises, current case studies, simulations and role-plays.
