Fueled by relative economic strength around the world, all signs point to a prolonged talent shortage that will plague global businesses for the coming decade.
As companies of all sizes grapple with how to attract and retain outstanding employees, more organizations are recruiting internationally and expanding opportunities for current employees to pursue a variety of internal roles.
This is good news for job seekers and employees who are looking to grow their careers and seek out fulfilling work/life experiences. But it remains a challenge for employers, many of which are struggling to get up to speed with this “new normal” where a strong mobility program — both internal and external — is now a critical business strategy, not just for expanding to new markets but for addressing both acute and long-term people resourcing challenges.
Mobility, also known as global mobility or talent mobility, refers to the movement of employees across borders for business purposes. This could be employees relocating globally or domestically, taking a temporary assignment outside their home office, or even business travel or cross country or state commuting. Mobility, regardless of its form, requires modern tools and support to tackle everything from tax and immigration complexities to being paid in multiple locations.
Mobility will become a key differentiator in the war for talent, enabling businesses that get it right to overcome staffing challenges. Here are just a few examples of why organizations should prioritize mobility in the coming year:
The potential is there for mobility to influence talent management in the coming years. While many areas of talent management have gone through a digital transformation, including recruiting, performance management, learning management and recognition and rewards, mobility has been somewhat left behind in most organizations. As a result, employees are often faced with highly fragmented experiences, forced to deal with five or six vendor systems and plagued with redundant data entry.
Adopting robust global mobility management solutions will transform the relocation process, giving companies the comprehensive tools they need to operate efficient, successful and growth-oriented programs, while also making relocation an exciting, exhilarating and life-changing experience for employees.
