Marketing Text The approach of FA.RE project to multicultural diversity in companies: guidelines and suggestions to create a new profile
The present document is meant to supply the main guidelines relative to the innovative approach developed within FA.RE project. Up to now, the adequate and positive professional integration of the multiethnic workforce within companies is left to the free initiative of companies themselves, who often have not the adequate competences to do that. When needed, companies may refer to external intermediaries such as cultural mediators. Yet, cultural mediators cannot support companies in managing the complexity of the internal organization that inevitably arises when it has to be managed human resources with mother languages and cultures of origin that differ among themselves and from the company's.
Within FA.RE we have tranied worker(s) within companies so as to take on the role of Facilitator of transcultural relationships within multiethnic enterprises and acquire the necessary competences to be able to transfer a relational process of negotiation and mutual recognition among workers of different ethnic groups, sustain the process of overcoming the cultural misunderstandings and sense of uneasiness that may emerge in interpersonal relationships within the multiethnic enterprise, transfer concepts and behaviors that foster the sense of belonging to the company organization, be a “bridging” figure of bidirectional support (workers/entrepreneur, entrepreneur/workers) that facilitates the organizational and work learning, especially when relational skills are weakened by poor knowledge of autochthonous language.
Target group Companies, workers, trade unions, stakeholders, media, training agencies, public administration.
