As technological disruption and acute talent shortages
continue to redefine industries, business models, workplaces, and employee-employer relationships, HR and
mobility functions need to catch up and add new value to
the business.
Well-executed global mobility programs are essential for
organizations looking to attract, retain, and develop talent.
A Deloitte survey found that 68 per cent of the executives
surveyed agreed that a mobile workforce is a key enabler of
business and talent strategies. What was previously viewed
as a transactional and a tactical function is fast becoming a
key competitive talent strategy for organizations, right from
fledgling startups to large multinationals.
"Business leaders are looking outside of physical locations
by recruiting in other markets, as well as expanding opportunities for current employees to pursue new roles. Strong
internal and external mobility programs have become critical components to business strategy that solves long-term
talent retention and staffing challenges," says Shawn Farshchi, CEO at Topia, a mobility management software provider.
However, global mobility is complex, risk-laden, and an expensive process for employers. Employees, on the other
hand, must deal with issues such as spouse relocation, setting up home in a new country, and at times a lack of support from employers to ease their transition.
"While many organizations have prioritized digital transformation, mobility can often be left behind in that process,
causing employees to face fragmented experiences that result in frustration and disengagement. Adopting an end-toend talent mobility management solution is key for organizations to operate more efficiently and make the relocation
process frictionless for employees," says Shawn.
