Exploring differences in management of short and long term assignees

RES Forum survey

At Gerson Relocation the support we are asked to provide to organisations relocating their employees overseas is determined by each clients relocation policy.  Over the years we have seen a growth in the variety of assignment types that clients use within their relocation policy and an evolution of rationale for the utilisation of a specific assignment type, none more so than the evolution of the traditional long term and short term assignment.  Interestingly, the specific allowances within each assignment type are often determined not only by the industry sector but the strategic aims of the company and the culture within which they operate.

The RES Forum are asking their members to provide an insight into the differences between the management of short and long term assignees through their new survey which will be published in Spring 2018.  As a RES Forum member you can complete the survey of just 27 multiple choice questions in approximately 10 minutes.

The report will be authored by Professor Michael Dickmann, Professor of International HRM at Cranfield University, School of Management.

The RES Forum identify this as one of their key surveys that build the backbone of their independent annual report and they aim for as many respondents as possible.  Please remember that by participating in this survey and their Annual Report research, you are helping to shape global mobility thinking, policies and practices. The data is also used for research purposes and wider dissemination.
