The function of global mobility – deploying and enabling talent effectively – can drastically impact business growth, yet it is often overlooked within an organisation. The exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in today however, have meant that global mobility no longer acts behind the scenes.
Whether in-house or outsourced, global mobility teams can dramatically impact business success and it’s important to remember the key – and frequently unsung – deliverables of corporate relocation:
The key role of global mobility
Organisations continue to turn to industry experts for advice on mobility, immigration, international taxation, and international HR, to learn how to navigate through the challenges of a post-COVID-19 world, including its impact on a business’ most important asset — its people.
As we experience dramatic shifts in core business activities, most notably the closing of offices and working permanently from home, global mobility teams now have a fundamental role in designing what is frequently deemed the 'new normal'. Agile adaptation, rather than watchful waiting, appears to be a smart course of action.
Global mobility as a function is becoming a beacon of hope for those organisations in adaptation mode.
The Cartus Relocation Playbook Post COVID-19 is a result of our collaboration with clients, which explores the challenges they have faced and unique ways of overcoming relocation issues. Showcasing these findings and knowledge from Cartus’ vast global network, this invaluable resource reviews four key emerging trends and recommended strategies, to navigate current and future talent mobility challenges:
• Global workplace: With government rules and social distancing regulations changing all the time, keeping up with the latest immigration and quarantine rules, as well as the overall risks associated with movement is key to your organisation’s decision-making process. We share our recommended return-to-work strategy that demonstrates a new global workplace process to ensure compliance and safety in an ever-changing global landscape.
• Travel: Pre-approvals and heavy controls on travel remain broadly in place and are likely to continue even after the initial waves of the virus have subsided or a vaccine becomes available. How do organisations balance employee safety, business needs, and cost-control inside broader organisational strategies?
• Talent management: Organisations must close the gap between local and assignee populations to ensure globalisation and growth. To safeguard the journey within the organisation while managing COVID-19 repercussions, it is critical to consider local HR principles and to understand individual employees. Our playbook explores how to shift focus from the needs of a business, to those of your employees.
• Digitalisation: As organisations and their employees adapt to an increasingly digitalised way of life, tracking your mobile employees and ensuring a viable way of doing so is essential. The robustness and availability of technology is also required to support ongoing cross-border situations as well as the pre-requisites of virtual assignments. Learn how to accelerate the digitalisation process via an efficient and secure platform to support your employees’ and business needs.
