Worldwide: 政府看似越来越"封闭",跨国人力资源部门该如何保持效率?

Last Updated: 8 February 2019
Article by TMF Group

英国脱欧在即,特朗普政府也已统领美国长达两年,再加上世界各地举办选举,均让人看见保护主义和以国内为重的政治立场。如此的情况也逐渐减轻全球化对世界的影响,导致人们容易忽视对职场人力资源的影响,惟影响却是确实存在的。

为了捍卫经济,各地政府推出了更多条例,边境管制也越来越严格。对于在全球人力资源部门的工作者来说,要时刻紧贴变化无疑是个挑战。针对每一个新条例、每一个原有条例的新修订和每一个新签证类别和入境被拒运动等,人力资源管理者都必须清楚了解,这样才能确保公司的政策和条例保持合规。

在这种情况下,一般会出现"自上而下"的情况:最大的办事处会得到关注,最小的办事处则独立自立。而任何注意力分散、忽略任何条例,都可能引致更广泛的问题,有可能是被罚款,而名誉也会受损。在这全球化的新时代,您公司旗下的所有办事处又该如何自处呢?

本地知识成致胜关键

对于刚进军新市场的人力资源部门而言,陌生的本地条例细节很可能就主宰着企业的成败。对此,您是否有应对计划?

  • 西班牙:当员工出国时,您必须向有关当局呈交表格。该表格必须亲手递交,不可以邮寄。
  • 日本:雇主每年必须量度年龄由40至75岁日籍员工的腰围,这是政府为减少肥胖制定的法律之一。雇主也必须协助超重的员工减轻体重,否则将面临罚款。
  • 俄罗斯:员工的资料必须打印出来,存放在个人档案中,并置放在每个办事处的储物柜里。
  • 法国:员工下班后可以不理会工作相关的电子邮件。
  • 巴西:员工保证享有"圣诞节"花红,这也被称为"第13个月的薪金"。

近期研究发现,对于自身的外国合规和雇员知识,有70%的雇主没有十足信心。同样的研究结果显示,40%的雇主每个月处理每名员工的行政事宜,就耗上超过四个小时,包括聘请、支付薪金及与全球的员工沟通。这需要付出许多的时间和精力,而您如果拥有远在海外的员工,事情的难度相对提高。

事实上,要了解最新的合规标准,一直都是让全世界人力资源部门烦扰的事情,程度甚至超越管理不同文化和留住人才。在跨区域营运的企业必须确认每一个办事处都遵守当地的法律和内部全球性政策。对于新员工而言,如果他们身边没有树立好榜样的同事,要掌握行为守则和企业价值观并不容易。

全球伙伴助您减轻负担

随着企业拓展至新市场,企业的中央团队将失去对当地营运的控制和能见度。系统和程序将会变得分散,进而增加合规和生产力的风险。然而,与跨区域伙伴合作,就能维持全球能见度,这对跨国企业的团队十分重要。同时,跨区域伙伴也能确保您在所有营运地点保持合规。基于拥有全球能见度,您可以提升生产力和员工的敬业精神,帮助提升企业文化,成为首选雇主。

TMF Group能帮助您解决行政负担,包括那些位于远程的小型办事处的员工。我们可以帮助您遵守当地的条规以及处理关键事宜,如雇员手册、任何劳动力审计、提供最新的条例和本地合规资讯、及准备和呈交报告。透过全球化业务,TMF Group能为您的员工提供全面支持,包括从他们加入公司、任职期间、一直到离职为止。
