Asia. Are you ready? Leading effectively when West meets East.

The global economy and the emergence of Asia present many opportunities and challenges for Western businesses and their HR leaders. Asian values and management styles are completely different from those applying in Europe and Norh America. HR executives need to develop a repertoire of strategic leadership capabilities to remain effective and communicate with Asian clients, colleagues and employees. One of the most important capabilities needed is cultural intelligence (CQ).

Dagmar Richardson

Recruitment and hiring of foreign nationals - current legal regulations and practices

Dagmar Richardson, Owner, International HR Services AG

Switzerland continues to tighten it's regulations for the issuance of work permits and at the same time increases compliance controls in this area. Companies thus have to be aware of existing laws and regulations to continue hiring skilled professionals from abroad in a legally correct manner. This presentation provides essential basic knowledge of the actual Swiss legal practice and it's implications.
Various questions arise when it comes to hiring a foreign national, either from an EU/Efta country or a third country. What has to be considered when a foreign national visits the company in Switzerland for a job interview? What has to be done to hire a foreign national who has already been employed in Switzerland? How does the recruitment process have to be designed to ensure the selected top candidates from abroad will actually receive a work permit? These and other issues will be addressed during this presentation, which is designed to empower companies to deal with fundamental issues of international recruitment and assignments.
