When small and medium-sized businesses expand into new markets, HR is faced with a variety of issues. Reward, for example, is a major concern. What are the appropriate levels of base salary for my employees abroad? What do I need to pay employees who transfer from company headquarters to take on key positions abroad? Which benefits and allowances need to be considered?

Answers to these and many other issues relating to remuneration and benchmark data can be found on this website.
