The role of Global Mobility has continued to evolve in recent years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic and geopolitical instability, the rapid increase in hybrid and remote work models, and the critical need to be competitive in attracting and retaining top talent. As the complexity of Global Mobility has increased, so has the need, and importance, of an expert Mobility team.

At the same time, a more strategic role in talent development and workforce strategy has been emerging for the Global Mobility function. To this end, it is important to align Global Mobility’s purpose with the company’s talent strategies and business objectives. 

Sirva recently developed a paper that outlines the value of global mobility, including key objectives, value to talent initiatives, and its benefits to both your organisation and your employees.
