You will learn solutions to implement and mistakes to avoid when managing a global workforce. 

As HR professionals, we face many challenges when operating across borders: different laws, different cultures, and different languages, to name a few. How to manage these differences is the essence of International HR. In this session, we'll discuss common scenarios in global employment and mobility that lead to traps for the unwary and often turn into cautionary tales for the practitioner, as well as recent developments and changes in the law in key jurisdictions. This session will help you:

  • Enhance your ability to manage a global workforce and understand different employment considerations in different jurisdictions.        
  • Mitigate your risk and enhance compliance by anticipating issues before they become big problems.
  • Apply best practices to actual global employment situations.
