Global Trend

Companies placing workers internationally are not simply sending employees abroad—they are also sending their families. Global mobility managers have seen that family issues frequently cause assignments to fail and, as a result, are beginning to recognize the connection between a happy family and a successful overseas assignment. It is imperative that companies and mobility teams consider how immigration regulations impact families to ensure the success of international assignments. As an HR professional responsible for supporting these employees, you want them to succeed and thrive. How can you and your company address employees’ concerns and best support their family units? What are industry best practices? How far should your company go in assuming responsibility for an employee’s family dependents during the assignment and in a time of crisis? Does your company’s duty of care toward its employees extend to your employees’ dependents?
