Workforce mobility conference returns to Asia

Human Resources is proud to announce that the leading global mobility conference, Workforce Mobility Interactive, will return in February 2016.

The pioneering forum will bring together HR leaders and senior mobility specialists from top global and multinational companies to address staff mobility and expatriate management best practices.

Now in its second year, the conference will focus on the key areas of staff mobility and expatriate management which have been found to represent the most pressing issues for HR professionals in Asia.

"Transitioning to workforce mobility is challenging because it necessitates strategic manoeuvring of costs, relocation needs, technological equipment and regulatory procedures," said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.

"Through Workforce Mobility Interactive, senior executives with responsibility for employee mobility will be given the opportunity to share actual experiences and discuss the big issues."

Workforce Mobility Interactive 2016 is an exclusive invitation-only conference which will take place in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in February 2016.

It is Asia's only regional conference on staff mobility and expatriate management strategy.

Open only to director and VP-level HR professionals and mobility specialists from global and multinational companies, the 'interactive-style' conference is set to front this year's conversations in workforce mobility.

"The response to Workforce Mobility Interactive this year was much better than we anticipated for such a niche event," said Sharissa Chan, regional producer at Human Resources magazine.

"We’re very enthusiastic at the prospect of putting everything we learnt this year into next year's conference."
