Global employer services


Global employer servicesAs companies grow and become more global in scope, employment issues become more complex. Among the most serious challenges businesses face today is compliance with multifaceted tax laws and labour regulations. Deloitte offers well-rounded plans and program development strategies that can help transform global employment programs in a tax- and cost-efficient manner. Our services include :

International assignment services 

An important corporate legal and reputational risk that global employers must contend with is ensuring they and their employees are aware of and comply with local filing requirements. A successful international assignment program requires companies to strike a balance between competitive compensation and cost control, always taking care to have effective policies and procedures for regulatory compliance. Deloitte can help with this complex challenge through our extensive knowledge of tax laws across jurisdictions and our specialized compliance and consulting skills and software. Our professionals help companies coordinate various elements related to a globally mobile workforce and address worldwide compliance with employees’ individual and payroll reporting and filing requirements.

Compensations & benefits 

Organizations seek to design and operate compensation and benefit programs in a cost-effective, tax efficient and compliant manner—for the employer as well as employees. Deloitte professionals help align compensation and benefits programs with a company’s overall talent and corporate strategies, and the marketplace needs. We help address a complex array of tax matters at various stages of a company’s lifecycle, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, right-sizing, and general restructuring. Beyond compliance, our integrated team of specialists can help explore opportunities to transform global employment programs, such as, discerning the total rewards that critical employees want and need; identifying incentives for employees to successfully carry out company business and talent plans; and exploring ideas that provide a cost-efficient return on investment (ROI).

International human resources 

Whether creating a company’s first international program for employees, re-examining the operational effectiveness of an existing program, taking a second look at a current provider, or transitioning the administration of a program to address regulatory concerns, Deloitte’s international human resources professionals can help. We work with companies to administer the internal financial and compensation elements of their global mobility programs. Our approach aligns international assignment program goals with overall human resource and corporate strategies. We offer specialized experience in policy design, benchmarking and administration coupled with delivery skills to contribute significant value to the employer. That experience allows them more time to focus on enhancing the employee’s international assignment experience.

Risk. Talent. Rewards.

We draw upon the diversity of our organization’s experience and insight to provide clients with leading-edge planning that incorporates a practical perspective on implementation and ongoing operations. Additionally, we offer services that support the design and implementation of appropriate controls to manage the financial and regulatory risk of deploying talent across borders.
