Overview

Course duration: 1 day.

This course is run in partnership with JSB.

Research by PricewaterhouseCoopers has found that over 90% of new graduates believe they will work across more geographic borders than their parents did, reinforcing the trend that international assignments will be a significant but necessary cost to organisations.

Businesses continue to integrate in new international markets and require a mobile workforce to accommodate that integration. The movement of a talented workforce is essential to companies and corporations in today’s global economy where a global platform is a must in order to compete. To cultivate and maintain global strength, businesses have a common goal: to develop managers and employees who can be effective in multiple cultures and in complex and rapidly changing environments. Global business profitability is dependent on the ability of companies to find, attract, and retain the right number and type of employees to fuel their growth on a global scale.

JSB’s Global Workforce Mobility conference will equip you with the necessary tools to develop and refine the appropriate strategies and practices for the entire assignment process.

This event is CPD accredited.
