Asia and Europe are two of the world’s most-promising regions for expanding tech companies. Each offers ample opportunities for growing revenue, market influence, and finding the world’s brightest talent. But finding the right local talent can be daunting—especially when the risks of misclassified contractors can lead to disastrous fines, prolonged legal headaches, and an early exit from new markets.

That’s why Velocity Global and SHRM teamed up for a webinar highlighting legal, economic, and other essential factors tech companies should consider before seeking talent in top global markets.
