Cultural Awareness International (CAI) was pleased to have our Senior Consultant, Mercedes D’Angelo, participate as a subject matter expert on a recent episode of the Propelling Mobility podcast, moderated by Tim McCarney, Vice President of Marketing at Weichert Workforce Mobility.
On the podcast, Mercedes D’Angelo and Laura Levenson (Global Practice Leader with Weichert’s Advisory Services Group) discuss the topic of “Duty of Care” during the Coronavirus pandemic. The impacts to the mobile workforce have not only caused uncertainty and frustrations for corporations, but for the individuals and families going through the relocation process. Mercedes explains how the stressors of a crisis can often bring back culture shock for many assignees. In order to combat this stress and help assignees and their families to have a successful relocation during this global crisis, there are several things we can do as individuals, and as members of the global mobility community.
