The Strategic Proposition for Global Mobility and International HR: Mergers and Acquisitions— Challenges and Best Practices for Successful Integration

Click here to register

Analysts forecast a significant increase in merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in 2018 as industries continue to diversify and change their business strategies to remain competitive. Mobility and HR professionals are expected to drive value pre-merger, during integration and post-merger.

With respect to M&A due diligence, expatriates and cross-border employees are often overlooked, despite the issues being highly complex.

Join us to discuss cross-border mobility and HR strategies to proactively address today’s M&A reality, including the hidden “expatriate” challenges faced during the HR integration process. We’ll share insights on methodologies to approach integration activities related to: international HR policy (compensation, tax and relocation), payroll compliance, expatriate taxation, trailing tax liabilities and unrecovered employee receivables.

Reasons to attend:

  • Understand the impact global mobility and international HR professionals can have for successful M&A outcome 
  • Explore mobility considerations and “expatriate challenges” faced during critical M&A phases
  • Discover key takeaways to position global mobility and international HR as strategic stakeholders in the process 

We will provide a "Certificate of Completion" for HRCI credits for this session.
