Charting the course ahead — where will your global mobility program focus in 2022?

As we head toward the two-year anniversary of when the World Health Organization officially declared COVID-19 a pandemic (March 11), so much has happened to transform the world in which we work. New work models have been utilized, tweaked and embraced. We have had labor shortages, serious supply chain challenges and many events that are redefining our social and political landscapes. 

That said, how are you charting the course forward? What will be the areas that your mobility program will spend the most time on over the course of 2022? Obviously as the last couple of years have unfolded, we have all had to pivot and re-think initial goals or objectives. But considering where your company and program are at as we move forward in 2022, what are your top priorities? 

In our recent research, corporate mobility teams were asked to identify their top five priorities for the year. Here's what emerged:

  1. Aligning with talent strategy (attracting/retaining employees)
  2. Improving the employee experience
  3. Increasing mobility volume and resuming "on hold" moves
  4. Addressing remote work issues
  5. Increasing program and policy flexibility

There were a number of other priorities that mobility teams noted as well:

  • Managing risk and compliance
  • Budgeting and cost containment/reduction
  • Upgrading technology
  • Adding, removing, revising policies
  • Reducing/eliminating exceptions
  • Focusing on DE&I
  • Sustainability

Is there anything you have on the priority list for your global mobility program that is missing from the above? Linked below is a summary of what we heard from clients with a little more detail on the top five priorities.

Mobility professionals are often the “many hats” type. As in, they can play several different roles and juggle several different responsibilities from day to day. This can also mean plenty of competing priorities. Which priorities have pushed themselves to the top of the list in 2022? We conducted in-depth surveys with nearly two dozen mobility leaders and asked them to rank their top priorities for the year. Here is what’s on mobility’s plate — and how you can successfully target each area.
