Meeting The Challenges of On-Boarding Multiple Team Members From Multiple Cultural Backgrounds
In order to meet the challenges of on-boarding multiple team members from multiple cultural backgrounds, we must take the time to understand, take interest in, and accommodate the cultures from which those people originate. We must be open to other ways of doing things, understand the challenges new team members face when moving to a new workplace and joining a new team, as well as understanding our own culture and how this affects them too.
