Why does it matter
With the increase of globalization, it is imperative that companies maintain that all-important competitive edge. Given the tremendous cost of expatriates, companies that do not proactively review the effectiveness of their international assignment programs on a regular basis run the risk of poorly executed policies, disenchanted and unproductive expatriates, and negative impact on the bottom line.
Some of the key factors impacting mobility processes include:
- HR operating models for mobility functions.
- Use of shared services, outsourcing and global employment companies.
- Cost and risk management.
- Vendor management.
- Assignment technology.
- HR staffing and headcount optimization.
