Intercultural Competency Assessments

Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)
Competency Assessment

After the introduction, gain an understanding of intercultural competency at the individual and organizational levels through a research-based inventory assessment survey, followed by a debriefing of results. Welcome Workplace will then help you identify opportunities and develop a plan for individual and organizational growth in skills, behaviors, and attitudes to build intercultural competency.


Individual (IDI) Assessment

The cornerstone of our program is the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) tool to assess individual and group competency to navigate differences and commonalities. The individual surveys are completed online. They remain confidential and may be compiled to produce a group profile report.
