Each country has a system of legal and administrative compliance requirements of its own.
This challenges the HR International Mobility (HR IM) Officer to deal with the requirements of both home and host country in an international context. It's a hazardous job because of the complexity and the risks of non-compliance and assignment failure which lead to high costs and damages, not only in money. Also emotional, corporate image and personal reputation damage are at stake. And although there will be providers around to take over some or even all tasks, this doesn´t waiver the employer´s ultimate responsibility and liability for damage.
We've learnt from the past that what the HR IM Officer needs to bring an international assignment to a good ending is a network of peers and skills to find reliable information/ service providers and manage them efficiently, but above all, knowledge of how national systems relate to each other in an international context. Knowledge is the key to being in control !
First step to obtain this knowledge is full understanding of one system and how this system works in an international environment. This is the necessary stepping stone to read other systems and detect hazards timely.
The Expatise Academy provides this first step towards being an all-round HR International Mobility Professional in an intensive post-graduate training course "International Mobility & Compliance". This course is aimed at HR professionals responsible for cross-border mobility with a special focus on Dutch international legal and administrative compliance regulations and offers furthermore access to a
network of peers, reliable information sources, trusted service providers.
