Global Mobility Management
and Employee Experience
The global mobility experience for employees can often be
complex to navigate with different systems and processes.
When heading for international assignments, employees
must manage everything from organizing shipping to filling
out multiple forms while coordinating with multiple stakeholders and emotionally preparing for work overseas.
Shawn adds, "Traditionally, employees who are part of a
global mobility program have a fragmented experience that
requires them to take great efforts to coordinate resources
and information. Often, employees are accessing multiple
tools and mining for information from different sources to
stitch together their own relocation process. Automation
through mobility platforms can streamline the process, so
employees feel more connected and less frustrated as they
go through the necessary steps to relocate."

"A strong global mobility program also has the potential to
help businesses overcome larger issues. A recent study by
Topia found that more than 70 percent of employees believe
mobility is a career growth opportunity, even without a pay
increase or promotion," reveals Shawn. "Mobility programs
help organizations enable fluid career paths, leading to
better talent retention. Additionally, mobility fosters diversity and inclusion, especially when mobility opportunities
are properly communicated across an organization. Lastly,
global mobility management platforms are ripe with data,
which companies can analyze to help make the process
more cost effective for the business and more successful
for individuals."
While a successful global mobility strategy is underpinned
by enabling technology, it is also dependent on organization-wide commitment and investment in making the mobility function more strategic. Business leaders must start
looking at mobility as more than just a logistical exercise
and connect it to other HR KPIs across talent acquisition,
engagement, and retention. As the global mobility function
becomes more digital, mobility professionals can turn their
focus back from logistics to talent.

As global mobility professionals now look to put employees
at the front and center of their mobility strategy, having the
right mobility management solution in place can help both
employers and employees manage myriad challenges from
immigration to cost tracking, workflow optimization, and
streamlining communication. In addition to automation, data
analytics also plays a vital role in aligning the mobility strategy to business goals.

Parting Words:
What's Next for Global Mobility?

Global mobility management platforms, like Topia, connect
all parts of the mobility process from scenario-based planning and compliance risk management to expat payroll,
reporting, and more. For HR teams, this delivers increased
program visibility and real ROI. For the employee, centralized relocation-based tasks and data with the interactive
tools help take the stress out of moving - ultimately improving employee engagement and retention.

As mobility programs become more employee-driven, organizations must embrace agile career models and frameworks that serve the needs of mobile employees and
recognize global mobility as a key enabler of leadership.
Intelligent technologies such as machine learning, artificial
intelligence, and deep learning continue transforming the
mobility landscape, reducing complexities and risks, turning mobility into a dynamic marketplace of opportunities.
