The third edition of the Canadian Employee Relocation Council's Global Mobility Survey is out and here are three key takeaways in my opinion: 

  1.  The willingness of employees (across most industries) to temporarily relocate for up to two years to take a full-time job in another country with a 10% pay increase dropped seven points to just 18%. This means companies are going to need to consider incentives that support mobility. 
  2.  The destination countries that attract the most relocations are: the U.S., Canada, the UK and Australia. From a departure perspective, employees in Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Argentina are the most willing to relocate. 
  3. Global employees place a high value on the kind of country they are most likely to move to (High quality and accessible health care system - 82%; Is friendly to immigrants - 77%; Has a good social security system - 77%). There are more locations today than there were five years ago that people are no longer willing to consider.
