Executing and integrating global mobility and talent programs
In our experience, global mobility is essential for growth and survival in an increasingly global business environment; yet many companies aren’t sure how to build the required capabilities.
To respond to opportunities in global production, research and development and innovation, as well as to optimize customer sales, service and growth, companies need to deploy the right people to the right places at the right cost. Along with changing employee expectations, companies also face an increasing need to attract, develop, deploy and retain employees and leaders who know how to think and operate globally. In short, companies need a global workforce and global mobility, more than ever.
Our new Talent point of view, Smarter Moves: Executing and Integrating Global Mobility and Talent Programs, offers ideas on how to execute and implement key strategy, process and technology elements to support an effective global mobility program. The report builds on the themes explored in a prior publication, Smart moves: A new approach to international assignments and global mobility, where we introduced a new model for global mobility that offers business, HR and talent leaders an integrated framework for analyzing and assessing global assignments. In Smarter Moves, we provide further perspectives on ways companies can manage global mobility investments to harness their full value and create a sustainable competitive advantage.
The discussion centers around four building blocks:
- Global mobility and workforce strategy
- Global employee rewards
- Global mobility service delivery
Given the central role of global growth across all aspects of business in the coming decade, executing and integrating global mobility and talent programs are key priorities. It is critical for companies to be prepared to make smarter moves.
