The workplace is expanding, across physical borders and time zones. Whilst working across multiple jurisdictions brings with it phenomenal bonuses, it can also be a huge challenge for employers. How exactly do you get it right?Having an international workforce offers strength after strength. Firstly, an organisation which can offer global expertise is far more valuable than one with a specific and siloed focus. In any kind of service industry, offering an intricate understanding of procedures and customs in a number of countries is priceless.
