Within the international labour market it is not uncommon that employees are loaned to a foreign entity, called international secondment. In most cases this happens on a temporary basis, however there are also examples that employees travel multiple countries while they are loaned to multiple companies where international secondment has a more permanent character. Dutch Umbrella Company knows all the ins and outs when it comes to international secondment in the Netherlands.
For an employer international secondment offers the opportunity to stay in close contact with foreign markets and possibilities. While loaning your employees to foreign companies or other entities, they can make sure that new opportunities are taken so that international secondment is also a tool for helping a business grow in foreign markets. It also helps employees develop themselves as they learn to cope with working in a different culture and diverse circumstances.
