Mr. Jean-Raphael Peytregnet, Consul General of France in Mumbai and Chief Guest of the event, welcomed the participants.
To resume, the main issues which companies must be face are the challenges and risks for managing global mobility of employees, developing and retaining their talents in line with their business goals. The Global Mobility teams need to anticipate the requests (visa mandatory, regulatory compliances, etc.) to be sure that the mobility is possible and to not frustrate the expectations of assignee and his family. The teams also need to check if the employees are able to integrate in other foreign team because the culture is different according to the chosen destination. A company’s global strategy depends on the effectiveness of talent management programs.
The session was followed by a networking brunch.
