In this webinar, attendees will come away armed with practical knowledge of international assignment practices and experiences, from those who have walked that path before.
Understanding the rules of the road for international assignment planning is all about defining and articulating a plan for spending a great deal of the company’s financial resources. Because without planning and preparation it is all too easy for the unwary to bumble themselves into an expensive arrangement that ultimately fails to meet the company’s objectives.
This session will first encourage attendees to have an assignment policy, a set of guidelines if not rules that are met to avoid the game of “let’s make a deal.” From there we’ll explore the proper rationale for sending someone overseas in the first place. What does the company gain from this large expense? Who gets to say “ok, you can spend that much money”?
Attendees will learn that the challenges of the assignment do not end when the agreement is signed; they only begin when the employee departs. Attention needs to remain focused as employees realize the difference between vacationing in a country and living there. Finally, both the company and the employee should have an exit strategy for the conclusion of the assignment. Don’t let the “what will happen to me”? issue consume the employee with worry and distraction.
