Workplace Application:
You will learn a roadmap on how to manage employees working in any country. 

Does your knowledge of employment laws and cultural best practices expand beyond U.S. borders? Every individual country, city and municipality outside the U.S. has a unique set of laws, and the complexities of managing professionals globally are impossible to master. But navigating the labyrinth of cross-border regulations is vital to avoid crippling legal and financial penalties. This session will provide a roadmap to master effective HR management strategies in the age of global expansion. This session will help you:

  • Understand the key questions to consider when onboarding new employees and managing an internationally-based workforce
  • Understand the commonly-encountered international HR issues, such as equalizing benefits and variable compensation structures across global teams and deciding whether to establish a global benefits plan.
  • Get direction on how to protect your company and minimize risk when managing a worst-case scenario (such as an employee termination) in a foreign country.
  • Apply common solutions on how you can reduce reliance on multiple vendors and get assistance with navigating the complex world of global HR.
