The nature of overseas assignments has changed significantly since the 1970s. Businesses, like the population, will continue to adjust their operations, nature and geographic location of the workforce, as well as their fundamental structure and roles. We will see a shift from country-based multinationals to global multinationals, and a change in how and where business operates.
How your organisation responds to these rapid changes will be critical. Business and mobilisation strategies will need to progress quickly to keep ahead of both changes in the organisation’s geographic landscape, and the further increases in assignee numbers that will result.
How will your business operate in this new environment? What talent will you need to compete, and how will you safeguard your talent pipeline for the long term? The winners of 2020 will be those companies that adjust their strategies now.
