Benefits play an important part in the decision process of high calibre employees who you are hoping to retain, particularly if you are asking them to make a move abroad. A transition on this scale not only affects the employee, but their family also.
A talented global benefits professional will ensure that the work and commitment of your top employees is reflected in the benefits package they receive. This should take into account the needs and wants of the individual and the standard benefits package in your industry, as it is vital that you are able to provide benefits that are both comprehensive and competitive in your market.
What can a global benefits professional do for your business?
Global benefits employees have a diverse skill set in order to successfully fulfil their daily responsibilities, which include:
- Developing benefits packages for employees abroad and implementing them
- Working in partnership with compensation, benefits and rewards teams throughout the business
- Budgeting and salary assessment
- Using industry benchmarking to create a competitive compensation and benefits plan
- Finding suitable living arrangements for the employee and their family
The candidate should also be able to demonstrate strong communication skills when discussing benefits arrangements with employees at different levels of seniority across the company; with whom they will be responsible for discussing which compensatory and benefit demands the company can meet within budget.
