Evaluation for Selecting and Hiring of Employees in a Multicultural Environment
Paraschos Maniatis

Business leaders seeking increased market expansion through acquisition, mergers, and joint ventures, as well as those managing overseas or multicultural subsidiaries, can greatly increase their effectiveness by becoming culturally aware. Multicultural Management exposes in detail the special skills needed to successfully negotiate and work with people from other cultures, clearing up the “mysteries” behind these and other questions.Every management expert in the world agrees on one thing: The country or company whose citizens have the greatest cross- cultural competency will have the advantage in the coining years. This will happen because they are going to recruit-evaluate and hire the very best one. The Multicultural management deals with everyday business situations like rewarding and motivating employees, communicating, training, transferring technology, and negotiating across cultures.
