ECA International, provider of knowledge, information and technology for the management and assignment of employees around the world, announces a new, one-day conference, Managing challenging assignments: Strategies for successful mobility in today’s world, to be held on 28 April in London.
Designed to provide both strategic insights and practical advice to European-based HR practitioners managing mobility programmes, the event will feature sessions on topics including Managing business in turbulent times; Addressing compensation challenges for talent in difficult locations; Effective risk and crisis management; Recruiting, mobilising and retaining key staff; Contractual arrangements, payroll and other practical issues, and Setting up, delivering and managing assignment pay in unstable times and new markets.
The day will include case studies from Ericsson and BAM International and a business keynote from Corporate Turnaround Specialist, Anthony Holmes. There will also be workshops led by BDO, BAL, Control Risks and our very own experts designed to provide delegates with practical take-aways to help deal with actual and possible challenging scenarios.
“Economic uncertainty, political instability, changing regulations, talent shortages, assignments to new and difficult places, cost pressures, currency and security concerns are just some of the issues affecting mobility managers today.  The conference programme is designed to allow delegates to find out how to deal with these issues, learning from other multinationals and industry experts,” said Sandra Goossens, Conference Producer.
