The Art of Compliance
Each country has its system of rules and compliance requirements set out in various disciplines, each complicated in itself and, in addition to that, interrelated with many more disciplines as well. This challenges the HR Global Mobility (HR GM) Professional to not only deal with each discipline and the coherence between the disciplines but also with the complexity of the concurrent home and host regimes as well as the interests of multiple stakeholders in multiple countries and cultures.
This is a hazardous environment where the risks of non-compliance and assignment failure are always present and can lead to penalties, extra costs, or even imprisonment, as well as financial, emotional and reputation damages. And although there will be consultants and providers around to take over some or even all tasks, this doesn´t waiver the employer´s ultimate responsibility and liability.
You cannot eliminate non-compliance risks, but you can learn how to manage them.
However, to manage risks, you need to recognize them and understand their potential impact. And for that, you need knowledge. Knowledge is key to being in control!
The first step to obtaining this knowledge is a full understanding of one jurisdiction and how this system works in an international context. This is the necessary step to read other systems, detect hazards timely and act proactively upon them.
Country-specific compliance requirements
The Expatise® Academy provides this first step towards being an all-round HR Global Mobility Professional in an intensive post-graduate training course called "HR Global Mobility & Compliance". This course aims at professionals responsible for case handling and tactical decision-making regarding cross-border workforce deployment with a particular focus on country-specific legal and administrative compliance regulations in an international context. Furthermore, the course provides access to a network of peers, reliable information sources, trusted consultants and service providers.
The education method we chose is tailored to the individual learning needs of each participant and blends performance learning, self-study, peer-learning and classroom sessions into an effective and efficient learning experience.
Participants who pass the exam obtain the ECHR Global Mobility COMPLIANCE SPECIALIST quality designation.
