Mobility Programme Considerations

The rapid spread of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on the global economy and the way in which organisations are adjusting business options in response. Mobility is no exception. As with any rapidly evolving situation, mobility-related practices are also quickly changing. SIRVA is encouraging all organisational leaders, as well as internal functions (inclusive of mobility) to leverage government and health organisational information to better understand the virus, the ways in which individuals can help contain the spread of the virus and the locations that are affected by the virus. Pertinent information and valuable resources can be found on the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

During times of crisis and uncertainty, it is critical that organisations understand their responsibilities with regard to their employee populations. The following is intended to provide guidelines for mobility leaders and teams that will help them support their organisations in efforts to minimise the impact of the virus. We encourage you to review it in its entirety, including the Resources section, which provides valuable links for employers regarding various aspects of dealing with COVID-19.

As a reminder, good hygiene is fundamental to both the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 pandemic. SIRVA strongly encourages organisations to remind their associates to pay heightened attention to good hygiene practices as they travel on their relocations and assignments.
