Santa Fe UAE held its 3rd HR Breakfast Series Event yesterday at the H Hotel. It was a success and several global and regional companies like Air Liquide, Parsons, Veolia, BP, Emirates Global Aluminum, Seadrill, Visa, etc. were in attendance.
Ms. Fizza Sabir, Human Resources Manager, Global Shared Services for DNV GL, enthusiastically presented on the topic of Local Plus and Localization Packages. Economic pressures and a battle to win talent have created an environment where Local Plus packages are attractive for both employers and their expatriate workforce. Local Plus compensation has been touted as an effective ‘middle ground’ approach that reduces costs while minimizing the risk of losing talented expatriates. Fizza facilitated an engaging session where the audience discussed the benefits, downfalls and challenges in migrating assignees to Local Plus and Localized packages.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this event successful!
