Here at Gerson Relocation our senior management team have come across an interesting article this week covering a number of potential global mobility trends which is worth discussing and highlighting.
The article – which can be read here in full – covers five trends in the mobility industry, and as leading providers of global relocation services, the potential upcoming trends were insightful and useful to review.
The mobility industry is going through significant changes in how HR and Global Mobility are delivered, with both departments now combining as the need to retain executive talent becomes ever more pressing.
The need for global moving companies to remain compliant in a world where the move away from traditional long-term global mobility policies can create regulation mishaps can be confusing – we believe that it’s critical to re-adjust policies that might not have been reviewed for some time.
So, here’s the top five upcoming global mobility trends discussed in the piece:
Trend 1 – Centralisation with a regional lens
Trend 2 – Transparency is the new black
Trend 3 – Ownership is changing hands
Trend 4 – Traditional global assignments on the wane
Trend 5 – Compliance is a serious business
These top trends illustrate the need for clients to think seriously about how integrated their human capital management programmes really are – both at home and abroad.
As well-established international movers, we regularly review and update our global mobility policies with our corporate clients, to ensure that required changes are in place well in advance for them.
We recommend that all HR and Global Mobility professionals review the article in full here.
