  10. 10. Summary How can we make sure we do not cross the cultural border without knowing it during the selection process of internationals? The more you invest in the pre selection/ offer guidance the stronger the commitment of the candidate will be. For international candidates it is important to: - Offer a safe harbor - Guidance - Show empathy - Take time - Think outside of your own culture - Guide them along the company culture - Use the Guus Hiddink approach
  11. 11. Quotes “ I chose to work in the Netherlands because many Dutch enterprises have a strong international focus and I find it easy to integrate since English is a commonly spoken language and the Dutch are outgoing and welcoming.” “In comparison to other countries I have worked in (Germany and Spain) the work-life balance is good and I feel well taken care of by my employers.” “Finding work in the Netherlands was such a relief as it really gave me a sense of purpose and made me feel like I was not only a part of Dutch society but contributing to it as well. I am thoroughly enjoying my work experience here as people are so open and respectful of other cultures. I have worked all over the world but the Netherlands is the place where I feel the most comfortable to be myself and to show what talents I have to offer.”
  12. 12. Summary Don’t we underestimate the role of cultural borders? Are they also disappearing? We do underestimate the role of cultural borders, even though they may seem fading away they are there and will probably never go away. Use the Platinum Rule instead of the famous Golden Rule; Golden Rule: prescribes us to treat others, as we would like them to treat us. “The Platinum Rule” by treating others, as they would like you to treat them.
  13. 13. Tips The hiring process of internationals remains different from hiring locals: - Show empathy - Offer guidance - Take time - Ask an expert for help if you do not have the knowledge or time
  14. 14. “ Which approach does your company use? The approach of Guus or Louis?”
