Project Duration: 2 years (2019 – Present)
CULT_RISK stands for Cultural risk in the organisation in the globalisation era. The objective of the project is to identify cultural risks within the organisations, behaviours which cause these risks, and to develop methods for coping with cultural risks in order for organisations to operate as efficiently as possible.
This will be achieved through the design of online training for managerial and lower-level staff, that work within multicultural organisations.
The idea of the CULT_Risk project comes from the fact that there is currently a huge migration taking place into Europe. People from the Middle East and Africa come to Europe for a better and easier life. This will lead in the near future to a large number of people being employed by “national” organisations. This can cause a lot of misunderstandings between workers resulting from the lack of cultural competences and the lack of skills on how to cope with cultural risks in the organisation.
The aim of the course is to educate the target group on how to cope with the cultural problems occurring in the organisations and how to behave in order not to be socially excluded within the organisation.
