The global picture for relocating employees and their partners

­­­­­­The world of business looks far more diverse than ever before. As a result, corporations, employees and those relocating with them are experiencing new challenges in immigration that have led us to question the way things once were. Tackling these emerging challenges will allow for greater equality and diversity within immigration policy globally while ensuring ongoing compliance.

In this webinar, we look at a range of perspectives, including the over-looked needs of unmarried couples and same-sex partnerships.

Underlying topics we’ll be covering:

Through this webinar, we will be exploring the current global picture for accompanying partners, and 5 trends that global mobility and immigration experts are working towards, including:

  1. Extending same-sex couples’ immigration benefits globally
  2. Accepting common-law partnerships
  3. Harmonizing degrees and qualifications where licensing is required to pursue a career
  4. Tackling childcare, the invisible barrier
  5. Understanding the benefit of global mobility
