Are you going to recruit your work force from the region ASEAN or India? Do you intend to integrate foreign health specialist into your organisation?
In Germany there is a low supply in the labour market for nursing staff. There is a lack of 10,000 personal, which can be covered by recruiting experienced staff from India or ASEAN. These experts have to understand the German culture, in order to work efficiently. Most are learning by doing, which results in frustration and mistakes. In the health sector, communication mistake can lead to loss of lives.
- Analysing the cooperative willingness: Make you staff be aware of communication with co-workers. What are the cultural values of older/younger generation?
- Making them be ware of German work ethics: Taking and giving instructions, and communicating within a hierarchy. Making decision according to specifications.
- Risks: Which staff are not able to adapt? Constantly training the mind-set required from your recruits.
