As the world economy trembles on the edge of another recession, more and more companies are taking an international view, in order to try and insulate themselves against economic woes in individual countries. More and more businesses in the UK are opening offices in far flung climbs and HR departments are having to prepare employees for a new life abroad.
Mobility is going to be the key to avoiding the effects of another economic collapse, the ability to up-sticks and seek shelter in safer harbors is going to be key as the economic skies start to darken.
So with this in mind how should HR departments approach the task of making businesses more mobile? How should issues regarding ever changing legal and immigration rules be approached for example. And how should HR departments deal with the difficult task of assisting employees in the uprooting of families, the finding of schools, jobs for spouses and child-care for pre-school children. We will also consider how HR departments can ease the trauma of moving away from home and the personal distress that this could cause both employees and their families.
