It has to be one of the most frustrating parts of placing someone into a new location. You locate the person, secure the approval, agree the terms and process all the paperwork. Job done, you'd think... but no.
Why? Because everything changes.
- Laws change
- Company policies change
- Markets change
- Currencies change
- Expectations change
So how do you know if the local authorities have hanged the current processing time for a Z visa in Shanghai? Have you checked that the payroll you established in Vietnam 2 years ago is still accurate? Or that the employment contract in Brazil hasn't been affected by recent legislation?
The most effective way is to use specialist providers who have experience and knowledge of local markets. This ensures that you get current information, best of breed solutions and most importantly - you can focus your attention on the multitude of other issues you have to deal with! Let's face it - every year it becomes harder for recruiters, global mobility professionals and human resources to ensure they are compliant with the regulations of the countries they are doing business. Why make it harder by trying to do it all yourself?
