An interview with Inge Nitsche, managing director of the Expatise Academy for Education and Research on International Labour Mobility, about the increasing complexity of the job, the necessity of continuing education and the Expatise Concept of Learning. Expatise is a networking organization in which government, businesses and consultants cooperate in the fields of education and research.
“Over the last two decades we have witnessed an intensification of cross-border personnel flows as well as a diversification in cross-border deployment, which have increased the workload of HR Mobility officers dramatically. Simultaneously, governments have started imposing more obligations to ensure the levying of taxes and premiums and to prevent domestic labour being displaced from the local labour market. This has led to complex regulations regarding immigration, work permits, labour conditions, social security, and employment tax – and an increasingly stringent enforcement of these regulations.
With these new developments, the international HR Mobility function has become a critical factor for the success of cross-border operations, and thus for the survival of organisations that have to compete internationally.”
Expatise is organising a convention on Asia in Amsterdam on November 18.
