AQUENT's "Business of Touch" offers guidance to the confused business traveler

AQUENT - Business of Touch

Ahhh cultural diversity... it's a phrase that HR professionals know very well! It can also be the catalyst for some awkward moments, especially when it comes to greetings. Aquent has created an animated website that demonstrates appropriate business greeting etiquette in nine languages and fifteen countries. For example did you know that a greeting in France commonly consists of two to four kisses on each cheek? Or that shoving a business card in your pocket without looking at it is a sign of disrespect in Korea?

Check out the site before your next business trip, or when welcoming visiting foreign executives!
