NFP Breakfast Event – Minimizing employee risks

This event is part of a series of conferences specifically dedicated to not-for-profit organizations.

11 September 2018, 8:15AM - 11:00AM, CET Geneva, Switzerland


We are delighted to invite you to the NFP Breakfast at our Geneva office on Tuesday, 11 September 2018. This event is part of a series of conferences dedicated to Not-for-profit organizations, where KPMG will bring you expert insights on key topics for your industry.

Employees can create significant risks for any organization, leading to reputational damage, financial penalties and loss of public trust. During this interactive session, we will focus on two employee-related topics which will help you mitigate those risks.

Know your employees

While we want to believe that we can trust all our employees to do the right thing, some of the most devastating threats can come from inside an organization. Among the most common risks are those around theft of data, fraud and reputational damage.

In order to address these risks you need to understand the whole employee life cycle process, starting before a person joins the company and ending after termination of the contractual relationship. Some of the questions we will address during this session are:

  • How do you ensure you have the appropriate selection and vetting measures in place to ensure the right people are joining your workforce?
  • How do you maintain the right level of people risk assurance through the entire employment cycle?
  • What is the best way to handle internal investigations in a fair and trustworthy manner?

Mobile employees

Employees travelling and working internationally can create significant tax and social security compliance risks. Whilst many organizations have agreements with Switzerland which provide for exemption of Swiss income taxes for foreign workers, it should not be assumed that this is the case when you send those employees to work in other countries.

As tax and social security regulations are constantly changing, you need to be up to date with these changes and compliant with the relevant regulations in the different work locations. If you have any employees working internationally, these are the top 3 questions you should be able to answer:

  • Have you reviewed the agreements in place with the countries in which your employees are working to determine whether any tax exemptions are available?
  • Is there any requirement to contribute to the social security system in the countries in which your employees are working?
  • Do you have policies or staff regulations governing whether the employee or the organization bears any tax or social security liabilities due in the work location?

During these interactive presentations illustrated by real life cases, we will present you with some difficult situations and discover how they should be dealt with. Some best practices and quick-wins will allow you to swiftly reduce your employee-related risks.

Please find a more detailed program below. You will have the opportunity to discuss the topic further with your peers after the presentation.
