Employing workers overseas brings many hidden challenges for organisations of all sizes, and once again Jelf aim to lift the lid on this complex area with another informative and useful event.

As usual we have sought out a panel of respected topic experts to help delegates better understand and respond to the challenges faced by employers. For this event our topics and speakers include:

  • An insight into the complex world of Global Risk Management via Declan Meighan and Jon Atkins of Healix International.
  • Bill Kirwan and Jason Martindale of Radius looking at International and Global HR issues (including Employment Law).

This important event will take place in the opulent surroundings of Fortnum & Mason’s Drawing Room. The famous department store has stood on the same site since 1707, and is known for quality food and its long standing royal patronage. Queens Charlotte and Victoria, and the present day Duchess of Cambridge, have all been regular customers. Our delegates will be provided with a Fortnum and Mason complimentary breakfast to enjoy at their leisure before the event begins.

09:30  “International and Global HR Issues”

As your organization expands internationally the complexity of your operations will increase dramatically. The challenges faced in hiring the employees with the skill sets you need, retaining them, and even paying them the right way are critical to delivering sustainable growth in international markets. Multinational payrolls, expatriate vs. in-country staffing to engage and retain the right talent and complying with local regulations can leave room for error with significant compliance and business risk exposures. During this session Bill and Jason will discuss; key employment law considerations for international staff, how to mitigate key operational risk exposures when expanding across borders, plus key issues and trends in multinational payroll.

Speakers:  Bill Kirwan & Jason Martindale, Radius

09:55  “Business Resilience – Security and Medical Best Risk Approach”

This session will include a synopsis of three separate case studies of major global incidents in the last 12 months. Topics covered will include the Nepal earthquake, the major Ebola outbreak in Liberia, and evacuation planning in Sierra Leone. All three examples outline the importance of having the right policies and procedures in place for employers with overseas employees. An important session for all delegates.
