This article is a good reminder for corporations sending their employees abroad, that competition for talent remains high. Employees who are on assignment in their new location are contributing to the wider pool of talent available in that region. 

The employee may not initially be looking for a new opportunity, however with the competition for talent, organisations will need to ensure that they are supporting their employee’s needs in their new location and ensuring that their concerns are being addressed. 

Relocating an employee to a new location comes with a large expense for the business. In addition to the expense of relocating, it also comes with risk. Businesses need to continue supporting employees on assignment so that they're not tempted to leave for another organisation considering the tight talent market.
