The increased international mergers, acquisitions and collaborations have posed a challenge to HRM: more and more co-workers stemming from different horizons are co-working in multicultural contexts. Intercultural misunderstandings usually arise from the differences in the methods of work and the styles of communication. HRM experts are motivated to organize trainings, and thus develop the intercultural competence of the co-workers by virtue of the variety in companies. This paper, of theoretical reach, comes to explain the effect of intercultural trainings on the development and learning of intercultural competences. To this end, it was first tried to define the intercultural competences and to explain how the quality of cooperation within the multicultural companies is defined by these competences. Afterwards, the process of intercultural learning was studied. Finally, the development of these competences was discussed.
