The health risks posed by the coronavirus outbreak prompted us to postpone our in-person 2020 APAC Summits in Singapore and Shanghai. But that doesn’t mean we have to postpone connecting with and learning from one another.
In our APAC Virtual Summit held on 31 March 2020, Worldwide ERC® presented two, 60-minute educational sessions on mobility’s role in business transformation and strategy. Experienced global talent mobility professionals who are well-versed in the unique needs, challenges and opportunities of operating from an APAC HQ and throughout the region led the way. We explored risk preparation and some of the ways that talent mobility can be intricately and strategically involved in navigating global geopolitical responses. This program was designed to empower participants to sign off with some new knowledge, connections and solid take-aways for their own programs and teams.
