Best Approaches for Paying Talent When They Move – Both Domestically and Internationally


Competitive compensation structures are essential to employee recruitment and retention efforts. Despite the challenges of talent acquisition and expansion into new markets, organizations must ensure they have the right talent in the right place to drive results. Increasingly, organizations are developing and sourcing talent outside the location where it is needed. At the same time, intense cost pressures and the need to gain operational efficiencies create challenges for organizations that seek to successfully attract and move talent across borders. Given global and domestic differences in pay, taxes, benefits, and living costs, attracting talent across borders can be a complex undertaking. Making an investment that is right for the business and the employee is critical to meeting recruiting objectives.

Join us as we discuss key elements of compensation and provide an understanding of the pay differentials and allowances as we move this employee domestically from Atlanta to San Francisco, and internationally from San Francisco to Singapore. In addition, we will discuss moving an executive from Singapore to London.

During this session, attendees will:

  • Review the impact on pay structure when moving an employee within a single country
  • Understand the impact on compensation when sending an executive on international assignment
  • Appreciate the concepts of different approaches to pay structured by location, assignment length
  • Recognize that more than one approach may be required to align pay with the company’s context and business goals
