In today’s multinational business environment, organizations are in a state of expansion, known as “going global.” To excel in their roles, leaders operating in “going global” organizations must cultivate a wider scope of competencies and skills than their local counterparts.

With this in mind, Mercer has developed a specialized course spread across six months to help leaders from going-global companies address their people challenges. Throughout this course, participants will receive practical hands-on experience through case studies and simulations.

Course modules will include:
Global Workforce Planning
Foundations of workforce planning; Working session: Current state analysis through workforce planning curve mapping; Scenario planning; Risk assessment reporting; Governance and ownership model; Site selection
Going Global Through M&A
M&A transaction life cycle; HR M&A readiness; HR due diligence; Integration planning and implementation; Analyzing people risks and opportunities; Cultural integration & communication; Deal simulation on various scenarios
