Expat conference: mobility is key

Symposium: mobility is key

In today’s global economy, having a workforce that is fluent in the ways of the world isn’t a luxury. It’s a competitive necessity. No wonder a lot of midsize and large companies currently send professionals abroad. But international assignments don’t come cheap. On average, expatriates cost two to three times what they would in an equivalent position back home. It makes sending the right people key.
 

New strategies for employers regarding Expatriate retention, remuneration & health

Employers struggle with attracting new talent and retaining valuable employees. Many companies are investing in competitive terms of employment and benefits. But an attractive remuneration policy only achieves its objectives if all employees know and understand its components.

As an HR professional or as a manager of a team of mobile employees, this conference offers you the unique opportunity to equip yourself with the best possible tools and knowledge related to retention, remuneration and health of your expats. 

With interactive talks, case studies, keynote sessions and networking opportunities, the conference is a perfect fit for professionals looking to network and wanting to exchange experiences on the latest strategies and technologies available to improve and shape the future of the global mobility industry.
