Looking for some trends in global talent mobility within the APAC region? In the first 23 days of 2018, we are already seeing stricter immigration implementations in Singapore and Australia. The talent pool available in APAC is changing the course of mobility packages due to relocation needs being different when relocating within APAC versus relocating across other regions. Organizations are aware of the many talents within APAC and will need to be competitive and customized with their relocation offer when attempting to attract these talents. 

In summary, we expect 2018 intra-regional volume within APAC to increase, packages to be targeted towards executive and technical specialist roles, and both compliancy and cost effectiveness to remain high on the priority list of employee mobility programs.
