Indispensable for employers seeking reliable information on compliance requirements, challenges, dos and don’ts, key traps, and consequences of noncompliance. HR leaders from renowned multinationals and industry specialists in Asia, the US and the Netherlands share need-to-know information you can’t afford to miss.

The focus of economic activity has moved to Asia. This has led to an intensification of personnel flows to Asia and, with the expansion of Asian trade and industry, from Asia to the rest of the world.

Simultaneously, governments have started imposing more obligations to ensure the levying of taxes and premiums and to prevent domestic labour being displaced from the local labour market. This has led to complex regulations regarding immigration, work permits, labour conditions, social security, and employment tax – and an increasingly stringent enforcement of these regulations. 

With these new developments, the international HR Mobility function has become a critical factor for the success of crossborder operations, and thus for the survival of organisations that have to compete internationally. It is indeed the task of the HR Mobility officer to ensure that employees can take up their new job (and complete it) as soon as possible, in compliance with regulations and their employment contract.

Even for the experienced HR Mobility professional, Asia remains a challenge in terms of compliance. The convention will therefore be offering need-to-know information on the ‘dos and don'ts’ in the fields of immigration, labour law, social security, employment tax, and culture in relation to China/ Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan and Singapore. Industry specialists and HR leaders share knowledge and experiences on best practices securing compliancy without replacing quality and efficiency.

Different forms of international mobility will be addressed, such as:

  • Inbound assignments from Asia to the Netherlands,
  • Outbound assignments to Asia,
  • Working with local staff/self-employed persons abroad,
  • Working with foreign staff/self-employed persons in the Netherlands.

In a nutshell, there is no better opportunity to refresh your knowledge with high quality information, quickly and efficiently.
