Across the world, companies have been bracing for the "Great Resignation": a period over the last two years where employee resignations have increased at unprecedented rates due to the pandemic.
With resignations hitting an all-time high in the tech and healthcare industries, employers are finding it difficult to attract and onboard top global talent compliantly.

A study by Bloomberg carried out in December 2021 in the UK uncovered that 60 percent of managers in the private sector find it harder to recruit than before the pandemic. Additionally, 89 percent of managers said their business currently has vacancies waiting to be filled.

To fill many of these outstanding vacancies, companies are attempting to attract workers with increased pay. However, raising wages isn’t enough to attract and retain employees in 2022. Companies may need to put additional focus on the skill set of existing workers and increase the emphasis on upskilling and reskilling.

Following the fundamental shift throughout the world of work, how can your company hire the best talent for the job and combat the pitfalls of building remote, global teams? How can you compliantly address the international payroll challenges, and maintain effective and timely payroll for your international employees?

Join Jennifer McGuire, Partner Marketing Manager at Globalization Partners, and Cathy Geert Chief HR Officer at SD Worx, in the session to learn:

• How to combat the perceived talent shortage in five actionable steps.
• How to easily overcome compliance pitfalls of international growth.
• Why going global is critical to company success.
