Good planning will help avoid long immigration processing times, increase savings and enhance overall control. XXXXX Create competitive benefits packages that will overcome resistance and respond to areas of concern (i.e., security briefings, cultural and language training). Drive greater value to the business by segmenting your talent (and policies) based on the criticality of the assignment to the business and the developmental value to the employee. Whenever possible, leverage the expertise of workforce mobility management companies that have deep roots in the region, knowledge of local business practices and regulations, and expertise in sourcing and managing local supply chain partners. Eliminate the complexity that manual processing of global payments can bring. Instead, automate and outsource compensation collection to improve compliance, boost cost control and prevent tax penalties and other consequences.
