Jennifer Green is a uniquely “specialized generalist” in strategic global total rewards/recognition and organizational development: mergers &acquisitions integration, change leadership, organizational effectiveness, employee engagement and goal alignment, contextual leadership coaching, and more. Her career has covered small to mid-size public and pre-public companies, up to large global Fortune 50 and 100 corporations. Ms. Green is highly proficient at cultivating strong, collaborative partnerships with key stakeholders to effectively plan and execute solutions to organizational effectiveness challenges. Some highlights from some of Ms. Green’s most noteworthy successes:
As Senior Director of Global HR at Synopsys for 27 countries across Asia, Japan, India, Europe, and North America, Ms Green lead engagement action plans and onboarding practices that significantly improved retention of key talent and reduction of overall turnover in critical talent geographies. While in her role as head of global HR, Ms Green lead the geographic team’s integration of the largest merge in the industry, working collaboratively with the Business Partner organization for a seamless transition.
As Synopsys’ Senior Director of Global Total Rewards and Strategic Business Partner to Sales, Applications Engineering, and Professional Consulting, Ms Green carried four strategic roles simultaneously in a matrix organization, reporting to 4 SVP’s of the Company. In her total rewards role, the first company-wide incentive plan was put in place, SAP was implemented globally, and sales incentive plans were totally re-designed to support a total re-organization of the sales force. In addition, a new workforce calibration methodology that supported the “pay for performance” philosophy was designed and integrated into a management compensation review tool and process for recommending employee equity, base salary increases. Other achievements included a multi-national benefits pool, yielding dividends and superior plan terms and conditions for employee benefits. In her role as Strategic Business partner to the field organizations, talent assessments, succession and leadership development plans were conducted with the CEO and President semi-annually. All roles involved a close working relationship with Finance to align plans to the budget and business direction of the organization.
Consulting projects have involved organizational effectiveness, total rewards, incentive plan development, and change leadership. Ms. Green’s diverse and broad HR knowledge, her understanding of business and financial principles, and her consulting experience, provide a solid basis for leveraging the strategy development and execution of the right solutions for clients. Areas of focus for the future include: change leadership, total rewards strategies and plans, and organizational development.

Pat says: “What I like best about working at GTN is the passion people show for providing our clients, personalized and responsive service. The atmosphere in the office is one of genuine pride and enthusiasm for what we do every day.” Pat has recently joined GTN and is excited to join such a dynamic and client service-focused team. She has specialized in individual income tax planning for international assignment employees for more than 25 years and has extensive experience with clients in the area of taxation of nationals both inbound to and outbound from the U.S. Her experience includes having worked outside the US in Spain, Canada and the United Kingdom, working with executives of numerous multinational corporations in Madrid, Toronto and London. She held the position of Practice Leader for Grant Thornton of their International Expatriate Tax Services. In that capacity she managed, directed and administered the internal team. In addition she oversaw the International Expatriate Services Subcommittee for the International Tax Advisory Committee and facilitated the expatriate taxation training for the International firm.

She emphasizes that assignments can range from short-term to permanent assignments, as well as complex business travel that may or may not trigger international taxation. Each assignment and assignee has a unique tax situation for home and host countries, requiring Global Tax Network’s knowledge of international business practices beyond tax law.

We provide Expatriate and Foreign National program development and support for organizations, including tax planning and preparation services related to employees on international assignment, transferring to a new country, or working temporarily outside of their home location (i.e., short term international assignments).
MAXIMIZING EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Preventing Project Assignment "Failure" and enhancing International Assignments R O I using The Fully-Leveraged EAP
> Is an employee assistance program simply a “nice” employee benefit?
> Should it be considered anything more?
> Are EAP purchasers really getting true value?
> How can an organization utilize an EAP to its fullest advantage?
> Does an employer’s size restrict the scope of expectations it can have for its EAP?
This presentation will attack some of the prevailing misconceptions of EAP, describe the merits and limitations of differing EAP models, enumerate their diverse applications and uses, and ultimately, equip EAP purchasers with the knowledge to be smart shoppers of EAP services.
The workshop will further explain how a properly leveraged EAP can and should be expected to advance the mission of not just an organization in whole, but to further the missions of its key components: Human Resources, Corporate Safety, Corporate Security, Legal, and Public Relations.
