"Alternative" International Assignments
Focus: Short-term assignments, permanent/one-way transfers and internationally hired foreigners
Our AIA survey uncovers the latest market trends in managing selected international assignment types and explores how the relative policies and practices have evolved since the last survey edition in 2021.
Worldwide International Assignment Policies and Practices
Focus: Strategic mobility management and long-term assignments
The survey helps you uncover the current trends in global mobility programs and long-term assignment management to gain actionable insights and benchmark your approaches. The 2023 edition consists of two separate questionnaires focusing on two key aspects: strategic mobility management and long-term assignment policies and practices.
International Remote Working and Virtual Assignments
Managing a remote workforce has become a priority for companies. The need to handle the pandemic constraints, together with a growing trend for more flexibility in global mobility programs, has prompted organizations to review their policies around international remote working and ensure they have the right governance rules in place. Mercer runs a highly topical survey designed to explore how multinational companies approach virtual international assignments and international remote working.
International Foreign Hires
Focus: Allowances, Entitlements and Benefits
After the 2020 International Foreign Hires Survey edition we received requests from 80% of participants to launch a follow up, more in-depth edition, that dives into the details of how organizations manage international foreign hires.

This survey, first launched in 2018, digs into policies and practices put in place to address the tracking, compensation, travel, support, and insurance coverage of business travelers.
