Single female executive moves from Edinburgh to Mumbai

Scott’s Relocation female executive moving to Mumbai case study

The brief

We were asked to brief a single female executive, based in the banking industry, and who was moving to Mumbai India on a 6 month secondment.

What Scott’s Relocation did

Maggie conducted a half day briefing with the employee, at the client’s office. The briefing looked at Indian culture, how it differs from British culture and how this can cause misunderstandings and a failure to communicate effectively, affecting job performance. We also looked at wider issues about living and working abroad, especially as a single woman on the Asian sub continent.  By the end of the briefing the employee felt confident that she had acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to perform her job effectively in a different cultural environment. She had a successful stay in Mumbai and was able to help her colleagues to understand the Indian way of conducting business on her return.
