How to stay competitive as a global employer in today’s challenging landscapeNikki Nang Nilaron October 8, 2021 at 11:13 am Employment Law Worldview


Global businesses today face an ever-increasing set of complex issues.  From managing flexible and hybrid working arrangements borne out of the pandemic, to meeting diversity and inclusion expectations and demonstrating the worth of their workforce, each issue brings its own challenges that employers must successfully address if they are to stay competitive.

How employers address these big issues rests on a set of HR documents and policies which must not only lay the framework for their approach at both the local and global level but also meet the legal requirements in each country of operation around the world. Increasingly, however, it is no longer enough to achieve bare compliance  – the pressure is to go beyond that baseline and demonstrate your values as an employer to attract and retain the right talent, as well as meet wider environmental, social and governance expectations.

For HR professionals, this means juggling an ever-increasing array of relevant contractual HR documents and policies at both the individual country and global level.  This task has now been made easier with Global HR Audit, the simple to use, free and innovative new tool launched by Squire Patton Boggs.

Global HR Audit enables businesses to pinpoint quickly the documents and policies they need in each jurisdiction of operation, as well as those they may wish to consider if they are aiming to go beyond just compliance.  The list of mandatory, strongly recommended and ‘nice to have’ HR documents and policies contains further in-depth reading via links to Global Edge, an award winning employment law resource.  Global Edge is a customisable tool that provides clear, reliable and up to date answers to key employment law topics around the world and maps out future legislative change to help HR professionals and in-house legal counsel stay ahead.
