One of the advantages of working for a multi-national organisation is that we acquire workforce from all over the world. We have a marvelous mix here, which rather suits my zenophile tendencies.
An Indian and a Brazilian in our midst, created the Inter-cultural Group here, a year or so ago. I am flattered that they invited me to join. The group provides advice on cultural issues for travelling employees; support to overseas visitors; translations; and spreads cultural awareness and appreciation of diversity through the workplace.
We’ve organised a summer party for group members, at our hotel, this evening, which I am very much looking forward to. I hope to be able to bring you some interesting tales and photos later.
