The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the way we work, and we can observe a resulting shift in how organizations approach and manage globally mobile employees.
A number of factors arising from the global health crisis, such as new compliance regulations, corporate cost cutting and restrictions in travel on the one hand, and the need to maintain company performance notwithstanding the unprecedented disruption on the other hand, have led to rethinking global mobility and caused an increased interest in international foreign hires.
First launched as a short spot survey in 2020, the study soon showed that the topic was highly relevant for employers around the globe. We have, therefore, launched an in-depth edition of the International Foreign Hires – Allowances, Entitlements and Benefits Survey that continues our research into the industry trends, policies and practices guiding the management of international foreign hires in multinational companies.
