PurposeThis paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.Design/methodology/approachThis briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.FindingsOf the many challenges multinational companies encounter as they grow and develop across different countries and cultures, one of the less-discussed areas centers around disability and inclusion. As with many other issues, human resource managers at the head office need to establish policies that are both consistent across the organization so that they are fair, but also respect local customs and beliefs in any given area. On top of that, there are also compliance considerations within each nation to ensure there is no risk of legal problems, language concerns so that policies are fully understood, and additional monitoring to ensure those workers with a disability receive any additional support they require.Practical implicationsThe paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.Originality/valueThe briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
