Moving talent around the world continues to be an attractive business strategy for many companies in Asia.
However, evolving workforce needs and intense competition in the employment market compel HR professionals to step up their game to create more flexible strategies.
With its first-rate speaker line-up, Workforce Mobility Interactive 2016 will present the latest principles and industry recommendations on how organisations can address current and future issues in staff mobility and expatriate management.
Taking place in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in February 2016, Workforce Mobility Interactive is an exclusive invitation-only conference open to director and VP-level HR professionals and senior mobility specialists from global and multinational companies.
"For companies to overcome challenges in international talent mobility in today’s competitive market, they need to understand both the art and science of developing global mobility programmes," said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.
"At Workplace Mobility Interactive, organisations will learn how to implement solid talent management capabilities and solutions for global immigration and compensation."
Workforce Mobility Interactive 2016 will address issues the HR community has found to be the most pressing for HR practitioners in Asia.
Here is how one of the topics, global workforce mobility, will be presented at the event.
Keynote sessions will focus on analysing whether or not talent mobility has been achieving its true potential.
One of the speakers, Thiyagarajan Govindasamy, regional director of human resources at Danfoss Industries, will describe potential talent pipeline solutions for successful deployment and management of overseas talent.
He will also look into cross-border policies that impede or advance mobility in Asia and the importance of creating a holistic standard of talent mobility beyond traditional international assignments and ROI.
