When an organisation first expands overseas it may be unable to service all its skills needs from the local environment or via international business trips. This puts great demands on the HR team to support internationally mobile employees to live in the host country. It becomes important to ensure a degree of equity between different locations for compensation purposes and the importance of the international business to the corporation will demand some control over local policies to support corporate values.
The first step in this development is to plan the approach to compensation of expatriates. There are many potential approaches. We can help you review and plan the most appropriate solutions for your business, from international remuneration and benefit packages to international payroll implications, and other international human resource considerations.
