Tomorrow’s Hybrid Nomads:  Strategy for The “Assigned Career”
9:00 - 10:00

We know that companies are trending toward more localized assignments.  However, in spite of the best planning, an employee can end up having accomplished more than one (or two or three!) one-way moves, in which she accepts and goes into localized terms and conditions in more than one location over the course of her career, which can result in a patchwork of compensation, benefit, health care and benefit plans.  See what business strategies result in  multiple localized assignments and what mobility strategies can be utilized to minimize the adverse affects for long-term, multiple-assignment expats.
