One of the key missteps that organizations make when expanding globally is to assume that what works in one part of the world will also work in another. It’s about much more than language. Cultural differences, shifting politics, unique legal regimes, and even history play a large role in success versus failure.
This is also true in the world of Talent Acquisition. The challenge to attract and engage high quality talent is especially acute in Latin America. However, most companies in the ‘north’ have largely replicated approaches that worked in their domestic markets when expanding operations farther afield, including south to Latin America. This is a potentially critical miscalculation.
