TALKS

Working in a multi-cultural environment remotely
by Mārtiņš Kozlovskis

Being a Toptaler gives people the opportunity to work with different kinds of exciting projects with people from all around the world. However, this opportunity doesn’t come with its challenges. People are different not only on an individual, but also cultural level. Nevertheless there are a few rules of thumb that when followed can help one to navigate in a multicultural environment.

Managing multi-cultural remote team
by Andris Akmentiņš

Remote work comes with its perks and also has its challenges. Teamwork it self is a challenge but being remote, distributed and from different cultural backgrounds raises the complexity to another level for managing this kind of teams.
