In this edition, we delve into critical regional laws and talent topics shaping the global workforce landscape, including but not limited to:

Global pay equity

The ongoing push towards pay equity demands substantial organisational changes, including restructuring job roles and updating policies to reflect recent legislation redefining salary transparency.

From outlining the consequences of non-compliance with pay equity laws to the administrative responsibilities with enhanced pay transparency, we will guide you through the evolving pay equity landscape across different jurisdictions. Moreover, we’ll shed light on the significant organisational shifts these changes necessitate.

2024 Elections

Employers are closely monitoring elections this year as they could potentially affect international business environments. We’ll explore how these elections, persistent regional conflicts and increasing polarisation on labour market issues could shape policies affecting multinational corporations, global trade, and labour market dynamics. From climate change to diversity and inclusion, we’ll discuss the contentious topics that could drive significant shifts in local labour laws.

Amid widespread speculation surrounding AI, from potential job gains and losses to the essential skills required in an AI-driven era, we examine the many facets of the technology. The development and application of AI are attracting significant attention from policymakers globally, leading to the implementation of tailored policy solutions. Specifically, we’ll highlight the European Commission’s recently established “AI Office” and its role within the EU’s Artificial Intelligence Act.
