Welcome to the August issue of the Global Payroll Association magazine. This month, it’s all about helping you get the most out of everything you do.
So for example, our cover feature, which is the latest in an excellent series on international business etiquette, explains how overseas professionals can avoid making hideous faux pas and upsetting everyone by providing insights into key cultural considerations when working in Europe.
