AROUND THE WORLDWIDE ERC ®

Collective Wisdom
To help keep you in the know on many of the topics or questions that are top of mind for
Worldwide ERC® corporate/HR members, here are some of the things currently being
discussed in their dedicated community group at worldwideerc.org/community.

WORK-FROM-HOME ALLOWANCES

Due to coronavirus and increased working from home,
we're considering providing an allowance to employees
to purchase additional monitors, cover cellphone costs,
etc. Have any of your companies done allowances
for home working? If your companies do provide
allowances, how have you calculated these in different
regions of the globe?

HOME COUNTRY TRAVEL

As the coronavirus situation continues to
evolve, we have received a few requests
from employees to travel back to their
home country to be with family and work
remotely. Is anyone accommodating
these types of requests? If so, can
you share any particular guidelines
you've put in place to help manage the
process? For example, are you treating
it as strictly a personal request, are you
setting a time limit of how long they can
work remotely, are there certain criteria
for approving requests, etc.?

REMOTE I-9 PROCESS

We are virtually onboarding new hires for the next
several weeks while we enforce a work-from-home
policy, but wondering how others are handling the I-9
process remotely.

EXPAT PER DIEM AND TRAINING

I have two topics, and I'm hoping to get
your feedback:
1.	 While the expat and family stay
in temporary living arrangements
(whether hotel or serviced apartment),
do you offer a per diem to the children
as well or only the employee and
spouse? If yes to the children, what is
the age cutoff between the child per
diem and adult per diem?
2.	 We've gotten fairly strong feedback
that offering intercultural training to
expat and family on the way back to
the home location after a long-term
assignment would be very helpful to
the returning families. 
a.	 Do you offer intercultural training on
the way back to the home country
for long-term assignments?
b.	 Do you offer intercultural training
only to adults or also to children?
c.	 At what age are children eligible for
intercultural training based on your
policy? 

Read the answers or add your own comments
to these questions, or post a new one of your
own in the Worldwide ERC® Community's
Corporate Benchmarking Forum.
