They’re not miracles at all, they are the natural order of things. But because they are rare, people think they are miraculous. They’re not. Even small companies would suddenly have access to a global talent pool, no longer needing to demarcate their hiring boundaries by geography.A win for all, in theory.Note to employees loving their WFH setup: Your jobs may be outsourced to remote workers in other countriesBut the reality would be riddled with myriad legal, technical and security complications, ranging from data breaches and sorting out payroll taxes across global borders, to overhauling existing compensation structures and establishing a consistent corporate culture, say experts helping companies reshape their workforces.Such a shift in the workplace would be complex, and one that could swing in favour of employers as easily as employees.”We’re seeing a different thought process taking shape around the world of work. Employers started this journey saying, ‘Let’s do this temporarily and get cubicle workers back first in a few months,'” said Jean McClellan, a partner at PWC Canada’s consulting practice. “Now they are saying, ‘What are the factors at play and what will it cost us to completely change the way we work?'”McClellan said one of her clients, a large financial institution, sought PWC’s services to figure out if it could procure asset management talent from around the world, instead of just locally.”Their own asset management staff work on quite a global basis as it is, so they also wanted to know does that make them a target for another organization seeking global labour?” she said.”There are implications from an employment law perspective and from a tax perspective in terms of where the worker resides.

The mob of kangaroos (some of its members beefy and enormous), hurtling uphill, felt like our very own mob and certainly gave us something the Dawn Service clientele had missed out on.Bemedalled Royal Australian Navy veteran (35 years) Gary Oakley, gave the Commemorative Address, giving it very informally, conversationally and engagingly. He works at the Australian War Memorial now on the history of indigenous service in the Australian Defence Force.”We [indigenous people] have been in uniform now, for, golly!, since before Federation.
