19th February - Mobility Challenges and Opportunities in APAC Emerging Markets
There are a number of unique challenges that need to be considered when moving employees into an emerging market, particularly when speed of deployment is an important business need.
With a focus on emerging markets in the APAC region, the next Sydney chapter event will work through the key issues to be considered in various entry models (including tax, immigration and payroll). A brief presentation from Rob Basker of Deloitte will be followed by a panel of in-house mobility experts sharing their experience with the audience on a broad range of topics – from policy concerns to personal security and including those more generalist HR subjects that sometimes get overlooked.
