Global mobility and the value of an International Workforce

Today’s economy is becoming increasingly international, leading to a rise in demand for cross-border solutions that will allow businesses to stay ahead.

At the same time as employers are facing an ever-increasing pressure on their cost base and the challenges emerging from a post-COVID world, tax authorities around the world are tightening their grip on compliance and promoting inter agency cooperation at a pace not seen before.  

Internationally, a new model is emerging, where staff with critical skills may be based anywhere in the world leading to increasingly complex mobility and employment arrangements. This only intensifies the challenge of managing fast-changing government requirements in areas such as tax, social security, and immigration law. Our experienced team has a global reach and can ensure both employers and employees remain compliant, for remote workers, frequent business travellers, permanent transfers, local hires, virtual assignees and traditional cross border assignees.

Our approach to global mobility

In an increasingly globalised world, companies need to have access to the right people and skills at the right time.

Having a global footprint can often mean moving the task to the worker rather than moving the worker to the task. However, achieving this often means overcoming the complexity of managing teams in multiple locations. Flexibility is key to success and this is how we approach the task of finding the right solution for our clients.

We know there are many factors driving the decision to work with cross-border solutions. Understanding what lies behind these decisions helps us tailor our support to achieve the best results possible.

We build lasting relationships with clients, placing a high value on the quality and practicality of our advice as well as transparency and fairness in our client interactions.

Our global mobility specialists provide access to a worldwide network of experts in areas including tax and social security, immigration, risk assessment, global payroll management and HR policy.
