Corporate global mobility programs are seeing increasing volumes, witnessing greater variety, and recalculating the value of mobility experiences (ROI) for both the company and the employee. 

While we have all been watching Long-Term Assignments trending down over the past few years, Extended Business Travelers and Short-Term Assignments continue to trend up, and "Local PLUS" and Permanent Transfers are trending way up!  In fact, according to a recent Mercer survey, Short-Term Assignments and One-Way Transfers are expected to have the biggest increases over the next two years. Developmental rotational assignments and how to support an increasing volume of "handraisers"- employees that are self-initiating relocations - have been two topics of interest for our clients.

Let us know where you expect to be spending considerable time within your global mobility program!  What are the most pressing initiatives for you?
