Recent changes in U.S. immigration policy are creating roadblocks for American businesses and their employees—especially those who rely on global talent.

Expanding into new international markets is fraught with difficulties. From aligning cultures to ensuring talent gaps are filled, multinational organisations can struggle to adapt to the norms and realities of their many areas of operation. But with the shift of economic activity from Europe and North America to markets in Africa, Asia, and Latin America comes a renewed need to manage global organisations.

Having this physical distance between teams requires companies to adapt and learn how best to manage and motivate when everyone is not in the same building.
