Collaborative: Leaders must be able to get the individuals to work in a collaborative environment. 3.1.4 – Culturally sensitive leadership in a globalised business world. Leaders must look at individuals and business acquaintances as people from different backgrounds and try and create an environment without stereotypes.

But the statistics generated from these activities often do not account for the increase in new job creations, the development of virtual teams, or the flattening of matrix structures within organisations, termed employment redefinition.

By employing virtual workers, businesses often find that they are attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent and fulfilling new organizational resource
Attempting to force-fit global HR and business standards into markets without acknowledging local values and culture can make it difficult to attract and retain top local talent. At the same time, companies that develop geography-specific strategies should keep in mind the reason why many workers look to them in the first place.
