Areas covered in this lineup include introductions to securities law and compliance, taxation, mobility, accounting and reporting, and executive compensation. Also integrated into the program is a pragmatic overview of global share plan communications, understanding employee perspectives, administrator challenges and dealing with risk areas such as data privacy and data security.
