Compensate internationally mobile employees while developing your global talent

International assignments are part of a growing company’s process to create change, improve understanding, and develop the global presence that is needed in today’s competitive business climate. Expatriation is synonymous with new business opportunities, expansion and growth.

Three main factors compel today's companies to review their international assignment policies:

  • New organizational structures focusing on customer needs and lower costs.
  • The different pace of business dynamics around the world.
  • Regional integration and the search for expatriate candidates globally.

A policy has to fit within the context of global human resources opportunities if it is going to be followed. Mercer’s advisory services will help you manage your expatriate assignments successfully in a highly competitive and cost conscious business environment.
