The International Talent Conundrum: Understanding the Pitfalls of Expanding/Hiring Overseas and How to Avoid Them

Wednesday, November 9, 2022

12:00 pm – 1:15 pm EST


Operating as a global company is at the forefront of business now more than ever. With remote workforces spanning the globe, bespoke solutions requiring in-country support, and up-and-coming markets forming in previously neglected regions, companies need an international expansion plan as part of their playbook. Expanding for the first time can seem daunting and untangling a patchwork expansion plan gets costly and confusing. International workforce expansion can be an exciting time for your workforce, if you have the right tools in place to avoid potential legal liability.

Join Andrew Laing, our Moderator and Sales Director at Vistra with panelists, Charles Zamora, Global People Advisory Officer at Vistra, Ross Eberly, Partner, and Eileen Leman, Employment Law Associate at Cooley LLP, as we discuss the issues that companies face when hiring in a new jurisdiction.

After the event, you will:

  • Know how to leverage global hiring solutions to hire the best talent possible, and to manage compliance, employee satisfaction, and integration from afar
  • Better understand the signs that it’s time to expand and learn how to take advantage of these opportunities so you can keep ahead of the curve
  • Be equipped with the tools you need to engage your first employee in a new country, or to send your local employees overseas to establish a new presence
  • Better understand the potential legal pitfalls of hiring in a new jurisdiction without first considering the types of employment or engagement that best fit your needs
  • Recognize what permanent establishment is and how to navigate it efficiently across all of your international operations
