The target of the seminar was to present SHRM to a group of HR specialists of different companies who met together to discuss the new chapter of the largest HR organization in the world - SHRM/USA.

Arona Maskil, M.A. Inter-cultural and Cultural Awareness Trainer (a Sr. Consultant with Corporate Resources Group (Israel) Ltd.) gave also a presentation on her topics, focused on the importance of developing Cultural Awareness when communicating cross-border in the 21st century.
The most valuable asset an organization has is its people, and unless they understand how to work in a post-global environment, they and their company cannot succeed in the 21st century. The ability to understand different cultures, to establish relationships and negotiate successfully with diverse stakeholders is central to business growth and success.
On a whole, a short but very professional event that supposed to connect the Israeli HR world to the global HR world and by doing so enrich our local processional capabilities.
