The world of work is changing. In a global economy people are an increasingly valuable source of sustainable competitive advantage. Organisations need to transform to attract, inspire, motivate, manage, develop and reward their people – or face losing their most valuable assets. We help forward-looking businesses do this by providing our Immigration and International assignment services.
PwC global immigration network has over 600 immigration specialists in 126 countries worldwide. Our experienced team comprises lawyers, human resource professionals and consultants with a wide range of immigration expertise.
The network is coordinated from a central hub in London, with regional hubs in Mexico, Singapore, South Africa and Russia, ensuring our specialists operate in a cohesive nature and enabling timely updates on legislative changes from around the world.
Our practice has close links with government authorities around the world, and we are often actively consulted and invited to contribute to the formulation or testing of new immigration rules or legislation. We provide a forum for our clients to discuss recent regulatory changes and future initiatives, and to provide any feedback based on our own and our clients’ use and understanding of immigration processes and regulations.

Our new report - 'Delivering more for less'- a study on HR operational excellence - is launching on Tuesday 30th September 2014 for you to use in your local market.
People have become accustomed to the ease, speed and intuition of the on-line shopping experience. They now want this in other aspects of their daily lives, including their interactions with HR.

HR needs to step up to fulfil these demands - or risk a serious erosion of credibility.
So what sets top performers apart?
Our new report looks in depth at the views of 150 organisations from around the world to find out whether their operational teams are equipped to meet these expectations. We look at that factors that mark out the most effective HR operations and the developments needed to keep up with the constantly rising bar of business demands and of delivering more with less.
