Executives who craft compensation and benefits programs for global companies must take into account not only the economies of countries in which they do business, but also cultural and managerial norms that may differ wildly from those at home. This council focuses on the issues of local nationals as well as expatriate employees. Some recent topics discussed:
- Compensation and benefits best practices in China
- Global severance
- Worldwide incentive/variable compensation plans
The responsibilities of international compensation executives have grown as international assignments have become part of executive development. Our candid and confidential exchanges help us to identify better ways to use compensation to improve both practical success and retention of critical talent.
