Industry-Leading Strategic Alliance
Global employers today face growing market complexities, from legislative changes and compliance to the technological and social forces, which are transforming the future of work. Whether solving global mobility issues, designing employee equity incentives, negotiating collective bargaining arrangements, or responding to increasing public attention around harassment or equal pay issues, workforce issues can impact a company’s ability to attract and retain talent or damage its reputation and market value in an instant. These issues have created a confluence of legal and business challenges for employers that can no longer be separated or dealt with in isolation. As a result, every organization requires business advisors who can address the combined business and legal issues related to its multinational workforce.
Epstein Becker Green and Deloitte Legal have aligned to provide, when and where needed, a multidisciplinary team of business and legal professionals who can present comprehensive solutions to significant workforce issues that affect a company’s market position, strategy, innovation, and culture.
Prepare for tomorrow’s workforce management challenges today.
This alliance—having Epstein Becker Green’s employment, labor, and workforce management attorneys on the ground in the U.S. and Deloitte Legal's professionals on the ground globally—allows us to deliver multidisciplinary services using a holistic approach.
