TNK-BP is a 50-50 joint venture and a critical one for BP, representing 25% of BP’s production. It has around 68,000 mostly Russian employees with only 200 of these coming from BP, who are carefully selected into critical expatriate secondment positions, in a broad range of senior leadership, operational and technical advisory positions. It is essential these secondees are able to integrate and become effective as soon as possible, in a fast changing and highly challenging Russian business environment.
The purpose of the Cross Cultural On-boarding programme is therefore to accelerate this effectiveness, though the use of the International Profiler, pre-event coaching and a 2 day programme designed collaboratively with Global Excellence. As most of the attendees are also a highly globally experienced audience, it is essential to be able to flex the programme to meet their needs. The course is therefore highly participative and brings together a range of experienced secondee storytelling, involves secondee partners, cultural change models and knowledge, a Russian culture expert andTNK-BP/BP leadership.
Sam King, BP Talent Manager, Russia and Central Asia:
"Global Excellence have been able to work very well with us in this framework, being open to our challenges, providing excellent cultural tools and techniques to bring the best out of the audience and the workshop, and in an inclusive respectful style. They have also provided deep expertise on coaching participants in their cultural development and preparation prior to the workshop, on a one to one basis. We look forward to further development work together in this fast evolving field at the edge of cultural differences on a global stage."
