Workshop: Onboarding Knowledge Migrants within your Organization

Finding new and strong talent in the Netherlands is a constant challenge, especially in the current market. Hiring a highly skilled migrant might be a solution; however, even this comes with its own obstacle, namely, onboarding. 

Onboarding is a crucial step in any employee journey, but, for foreign workers, the process is bit more lengthy. Immigration, registration, housing, schooling, and the 30% tax ruling are only some factors that need to be handled. 

During this session, we'll discuss the various topics and share what most employers offer their employees during this process as to smooth the transition. We'll end this session with a Q&A session and go into more detail for specific business cases.
