    We are all aware that we live in a global community and that is a reality. For many HR professionals, it is becoming common to not only focus on a local workforce, but also a global one.


    Many HR network contributors have also shared their views about hiring international co-workers to help grow business and train new employees in a foreign country. In this article, let’s look at the other side of the coin: hiring locals over expats.
