We continue to live and work in political uncertainty, with Brexit’s future still being negotiated, trade tensions impacting global business and nationalism emerging in a number of countries. And yet, we live and work in incredible optimism, with a global wave of commitment towards social and environmental responsibility.We are firmly ensconced in a digital world;highly connected with technology driving us to innovate new ways of working and communicating – and driving inevitable shifts in business models and workforce values.
We also live with the reality of an increasingly younger workforce. The youthquake of global talent is forcing most companies to shift values, cultures and strategies. Global mobility has not historically been at the forefront of adopting new ways of working but it is now left with no choice. We must take notice, embrace recent disruptions and prepare for what’s to come. There are few big trends mobility specialists should watch out for with Flexibility and Choices being one of the big items.
Flexibility and Choices
Flexibility and choices form a big part of global mobility’s transformation. Based on Crown World
Mobility’s 2018 survey:
- 47% of companies that offer Manager and HR flexible policy options have had them for two years or less.
- 62% of companies that offer employee-choice options in policy have had them for two years or less.
Today’s consumers want choices, convenience and the opportunity to customize. This reality is making it into all types of corporate strategy, including global mobility. Business and HR partners want options to meet their needs, whether it is the budget, region or employee population.
So why wouldn’t employees expect some choices in their company’s global mobility program? Similarly, corporate global mobility programs increasingly expect flexibility and choice from their external partners: concierge services, lump sum management, global or local billing, face-to-face (F2F) or virtual consultations.
