From Barriers to Borders: Managing a Diverse Mobile Workforce

Recorded: 08 December 2015

  • Overview
    • One of the most powerful mega-trends for business today is globalisation – the increased interconnectedness of the world that has profound effects on trade, talent, countries and culture. In this season of webcasts, we will explore the impact that the change from ‘think global, act local’ to ‘think global, act global’ has on HR functions. We will share our research, learnings from leading companies and new thinking on how the drive to global system design and delivery has on reward and talent programmes.

  • Why attend

    • In today’s globalised world, international experience is increasingly seen as a pre-requisite for executive and leadership roles, and employers are using mobility and diversity and inclusion strategies to win the war on talent 

      But while employers seek to harness the collective knowledge and experiences of all of their employees, diversity of globally mobile staff has not kept pace with that of the local population. The proportion of mobile women remains persistently low, LGBT employees face specific barriers to mobility, and an ageing workforce and the rise of Gen Y challenge existing policies and benefits. 

      Join this webcast to discover how organisations are addressing these challenges to build a pipeline of diverse global talent.
