The relentless pace of globalisation combined with global volatility means that employee mobility plays an increasing role in business strategy and talent development. To succeed, your business must be able to move people cross-border, capitalising on opportunities while managing the associated costs and risks.

Our Employer Solutions team works with a range of dynamic businesses, from those going global for the first time to companies with established expatriate programmes.

Our approach makes a world of difference

  • We have true global scale, deep technical capabilities and extensive industry expertise but what makes us different is how we work with you. We pride ourselves in adopting a relationship-led approach which gives you direct access to our most senior advisors. We are big enough to take on the most complex and specialist work but small enough to be flexible, agile and responsive.
  • Drawing on the knowledge and insights of our global network of mobility professionals, we will work with you to deliver insightful solutions that deliver tax efficiencies, ensure global compliance and manage costs.

We provide support for you and your people throughout the assignment lifecycle:
