Case studies

01 Global workation policy design An international IT company was interested to introduce a short-term working abroad policy for their employees. Nadia has performed a detailed employer risk analysis within tax regulations, social security and local labor laws to design a custom-made solution for each HQ. The policy has been effectively implemented in several counties (Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Argentina, Namibia, Spain and UK). Employes could start working from anywhere for 2 months per year. 02 Remote employment
and contractor agreements
A European art & design agency was hiring remote workers all around the world. However, they have faced employment misclassification issues as they only hired contractors with employment-related provisions in their contracts. Nadia has audited all legal documentation and suggested Employer of Record solutions for certain team members and negotiated all terms and conditions. She has also prepared new contract drafts and operational guidelines. The company’s compliance risks have significantly decreased.

Nadia has created a fully automated recruitment marketing campaign to target digital nomads and remote workers. She has also performed salary and benefit benchmarking in order to present an attractive hiring offer to each candidate. This has increased the client’s brand recognition, while saving a lot of money and time. 04 Hybrid work playbook A renowned international bank has decided to implement a hybrid work policy. Nadia has designed a complete hybrid work playbook to ensure a great employee experience. She has included aspects such as company culture, the toolkit, asynchronous working and including the company’s HQ for collaboration purposes.
