Perceptions
Word of the Month:
Intentionality
well-being, digital transformation, and economic recovery-
may not be mobility-specific, but they've upended the world
of mobility just the same.
The way we work has also changed. " For me, [that's] the
To be an effective mobility professional,
it's no longer enough to know what's going
on in your world.
Even as technology has brought more
of us together over the past year and a half,
it has also revealed the impact the bigger
world can have on our core business.
Real estate professionals may not be
directly involved in immigration. Still, you
can bet that the best housing experts understand
how immigration can impact who's
being transferred and who can purchase or
rent real estate. It goes the opposite way,
too: Corporates may outsource everything,
but corporate mobility leaders need to keep
a finger on the pulse of issues such as market
changes in order to continue to provide
the right incentives to retain employees.
Our cover story focuses on 2021 as " The
Year of Hope " (page 28) and how CEOs
have a sense of cautious optimism amid
recovery. I like that. But at the same time,
hope is not a strategy. All of us-including
those of us at Worldwide ERC®
-need to
monitor both what's immediately around us
and what's on the horizon, and to understand
how our tactics and strategy relate.
The big issues in our world today-
COVID-19, social justice, health and
enduring legacy, " says Roberto Suárez Santos, secretary general
of the International Organisation of Employers. " Not
so much remote work or not remote work, but ... measuring
for productivity in a different manner, being much more
focused on what the objectives are ... and considering
what's really important for the worker-employer relationship,
which is well-being, efficiency, and performance. "
Mobility's knowledge of the bigger world is also essential
to keeping our seat at the strategy table. " Be current. Know
the data, " says Chase's John Habanek. " Lean on your supply
chain to learn what they know, because they're the experts. "
We're more effective through this kind of collaboration.

And Worldwide ERC®
the pieces. For example, we've been working hard to build
connections with broader business organizations such as the
IOE, so we can share our expertise with them while also
tying in to bigger labor issues and how they fit with mobility.
One of the words I've been hearing a lot this month is
intentionality. As the world continues to shift, we have to
be more intentional and thoughtful than ever before-and
it goes back again to that broader awareness and collaboration.
We no longer have to figure it out all on our own. And
perhaps we never really could.
We need to be intentional in working together to influence
shifting policies in how we move people. We need to
be intentional in making changes-not just overreacting to
short-term issues but taking a firm grasp on the future we
foresee. We also need to be intentional in being agile when
changes happen, as they inevitably do.
We are where work is going. And when we collaborate,
that work becomes smarter, more strategic, and more intentional.
That's something I can put my hope behind.
