Employees managed under Employment contract from their Mother company.
“National Approach” refers to a situation where the package of internationally mobile employees is either linked to their Home or Host Country; especially pertaining to their employment contract and social coverage (i.e. Local +).
Generally Groups/Multinational Companies who practice this employment method establish “International Mobility Corporate Rules” that are not completely observed and applied in each of their subsidiaries. When there is a change in Corporate Rules, it is necessary for the HR Headquarters to ensure that such changes are well understood and applied by each subsidiary who takes on expatriate employees.
We observe that more and more Groups/Multinational Companies using the “National Approach “resort to the using of a GECTM to coordinate the “International Mobility Corporate Rules” with the objective of better controlling follow up and ensuring an accurate reporting for employees coming from different subsidiaries and those who are assigned worldwide.
