Countdown to the GDPR – What the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation means for global mobility

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, introducing stringent new data protection obligations for European (and some non-European) businesses

We will explore:

  • The scope of the GDPR and what it will mean for global mobility and the wider business
  • The key data protection obligations in the GDPR, including the concepts of privacy by design, accountability and obligation to appoint a data protection officer
  • New rules governing international transfers of personal data, in relation to data collected from or used by an expat employee

Brexit and Beyond – Turning challenges into opportunities 

  • What does the triggering of Article 50 mean for global mobility?
  • Is your organisation ready to deal with change?
  • What do the Trump Administration’s new policies on immigration and tax mean for UK and European companies?
  • How does the removal of Australia’s 457 visa affect business?
  • How can you turn these challenges into opportunities?

The Future Workplace 

This panel explores how the workplace is evolving and its impact on global mobility, including technology development, compensation and benefits, demographic changes and diversity.  Topics to be discussed include:

  • What is the Future Workplace? How are companies and individual roles evolving as Millennials step into more senior positions? What are the implications for C&B and mobility as younger people begin to move throughout EMEA on assignment?
  • How is connectivity changing today’s workplace? How is global mobility affected as employees have increasing ability to work from anywhere?
  • How is technology changing the workplace, and more specifically mobility as a function? What are the opportunities for self-service and process automation?
  • How should technology tie into compliance?
  • A look at the diversity agenda – how has this changed in EMEA in the past few years and what are the areas for future development?
