The 2022 report is available!
Mercer's 2022 Flexible International Mobility Policies Survey aims to find out what kind of flexibility multinational companies have introduced in their global mobility program policies, as well as their design and how successful they have been.
What is meant by policy flexibility? Any level of choice, either to the business or assignee, with regards to the package or relocation assistance to be provided to an assignee, whether for a specific item or within a choice of items.
2022 Flexible Mobility Policies Report - Key highlights
The proportion of companies applying flexibility in their global mobility policies has increased by 21 percentage points since 2019.
