New Ius Laboris Flagship Publication

Date   Nov 15, 2018

FordHarrison is excited to share with you the new Ius Laboris flagship publication The Word along with the Ius Laboris digital knowledge platform, The Word online. The Word is a 50-page report focusing on Forces for Change, which features articles addressing the impact of an evolving geopolitical, demographic and technological landscape on employers, based on global client research.

One of the articles in this publication, “Shifting business models and the forces for change,” features a roundtable discussion in which Ius Laboris alliance attorneys, including FordHarrison partner Tiffany Downs, weigh in on the impact of cultural changes on businesses seeking to hire and retain the most talented employees. Other alliance attorneys in this discussion provide perspectives on geopolitical and demographic changes and the challenges faced by multinational employers.

Other articles in The Word address the global impact of regulatory compliance uncertainty, the trend toward the use of remote working opportunities to retain highly skilled workers (the “digital nomad”), and other issues such as pay transparency, the ethics of gathering employee data, and the global response to the rising media attention around sexual harassment allegations.

These articles provide useful insight for multinational employers dealing with global change. If you would like a hard copy of The Word, please contact clientservice@fordharrison.comThe Word is also available digitally at
