The global mobility management team at Gerson Relocation recently came across a useful and informative article which we wanted to highlight on our relocation blog.
The news in the article, that Tier 2 legislation could be changing, will be likely to impact the work delivered by mobility teams across the country in the future.
The implications of alterations in Tier 2 legislation means that more work will have to be prepared by global mobility professionals, and more in-house immigration paperwork may well be carried out. This will have a significant potential time implication to factor in.
It has even been estimated by our global mobility experts that Tier 2 changes could even double in-house paperwork levels for both short-term and long-term VISAs for executive relocations in 2016.
The Tier 2 changes are in line with minimum salary requirements, and global mobility teams need to consider the higher costs that may come from bringing in foreign executive talent.
Adding greater flexibility into executive relocations also brings greater costs and time elements, which all global mobility professionals will need to consider in any future relocation and recruitment.
Our corporate relocation management team highly recommend that you review the article – it can be read in full here.
One of the main questions we believe global mobility teams in London and the wider UK should be asking themselves is a simple one – how do these Tier 2 changes affect what they do?
Our global mobility team are available to help, advise and assist with any related questions or queries around Tier 2 legislation, executive relocation and employee relocation matters.
