Companies need a global workforce and global mobility, now more than ever. They are sending an increasing number of people abroad, in a wider variety of roles, for many reasons: to prepare for and respond to opportunities in global production; to promote research, development, and innovation; and to improve customer sales, service, and growth. At the same time, global market uncertainty is putting companies under tremendous cost pressure. That makes it imperative for leaders to carefully manage their global mobility investments — and to realize an appropriate return on them.
Global Mobility Framework
Many companies can enhance the value of their global mobility efforts by taking a more thoughtful approach to planning and managing international assignments. Doing so requires a formal global mobility strategy that articulates the program’s business and talent management goals, and then tailors the company’s investment in each assignment to the value the assignment is expected to generate. Further, companies should look for opportunities to integrate their execution of global mobility with their “mainstream” HR or talent infrastructures, reserving global mobility specialists for the particular activities that require them.
The result can be a global mobility program that supports the business as a strategic asset instead of simply reacting to individual opportunities as they arise — one that delivers high-quality service that is cost-effective, consistent, and relatively easy to use, manage, and administer.
