Mobility Matters: Is relocation still a tool for improving employee engagement?
We surveyed 250+ HR professionals to find the challenges facing global mobility going into 2024
The world has changed. And rapidly. The shifts we’ve seen around where, when and how we work, along with a heightened focus on employee wellbeing, have led to a near total realignment in how organizations maintain high levels of employee engagement. As lockdowns shifted people’s perspectives around work-life balance, and the Great Resignation set in, key engagement metrics, like retention, have come under the microscope.
So what has that meant for relocation and global mobility programs?
We set out to learn more from HR managers around the world about how they are viewing relocation as a means of employee engagement today. We spoke to 251 HR professionals from the UK and Ireland, the US, Singapore, France and Germany to take a pulse check of the challenges they are experiencing in relation to mobility – and to reveal the views of their assignees.
The research has been split into three sections:
- The first, explores how to assess the suitability of an employee to send on assignment, and how to tackle any hesitancies they may have.
- The second, which you can download here, section reveals some fascinating insights into the increase in levels of productivity for assignees.
- And finally, the third section sheds light on some of the wellbeing challenges assignees may experience and how this is balanced with an improved quality of life.
Download the second report in the series now, and we’ll email you report three when it launches.
