tesa and eidam & partner make cultures stick together
Eidam & Partner and tesa have been working together successfully since 2007, particularly in the field of cross-cultural trainings to prepare employees for international assignments. In the process, we’ve prepared numerous expatriates for deployment to China, Singapore and the USA, among other countries, and we’ve also prepared foreign nationals to live and work in Germany.
According to its own employees, tesa appreciates the expertise of our trainers, the effective and entertaining design of our seminars and the professional approach to our preparations and post-processing.
tesa ranks among the world’s leading manufacturers of self-adhesive products and system solutions for industrial and professional customers, as well as for end users. It sells more than 7,000 adhesive products in more than 100 countries. There are currently more than 4,450 employees working for the tesa Group worldwide.
Because of this international context, effective cooperation among different cultures is incredibly important to everyday business.
New training videos
We now offer entertaining, exciting training videos with a well-known partner from the cross-cultural training scene. In addition to country-specific clips [for example, on meetings in China or project work with Americans], the repertoire also includes videos on cross-border topics [for example, working with virtual international teams].
The 5-7-minute clips can be combined with our cross-cultural trainings, or they can be exported separately into your company’s training platform or intranet.
The following example video provides a look into the topic of meetings in China.
Software meets soft skill – cross-cultural trainings for Fujitsu TDS
Fujitsu TDS is a full-range IT service provider and SAP system vendor for medium-sized and large companies. Its main offerings include IT outsourcing, application management and SAP consulting.
Since 2014, Fujitsu TDS has been working with Eidam & Partner in the field of cross-cultural training. In this context, we have had the honor of conducting several successful trainings on various target countries for the company.
Christian Wolf, a human resource development employee, had this to say about the cooperation: “I highly value our collaboration with Eidam & Partner thanks to the professionalism of the trainers and the outstanding organization of the cross-cultural trainings. With Eidam & Partner, we implemented the cross-cultural trainings ‘Japan Day’, ‘India Day’ and ‘Eastern Europe Day’, which continue to help the employees in our company work effectively with their colleagues in the target countries.”

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.
