Going Global? Effectively Take Your HR Policies Outside the US
With the current focus on U.S. multinational operations around the world and the pressure to meet globally acceptable and locally effective compliance, companies regularly turn to global employment policies as a tool to manage their local employment-related risks. Often the desire is to house these policies in a single "global" employment handbook. While it seems efficient, a truly one-size-fits-all single, global handbook is not realistic option. This paper discusses the potential problem with a single "global" handbook and outlines three approaches to get U.S. multinationals to the same result while fully complying with local laws.
