Global Mobility Transformation: Journey Towards Program Optimisation and Agility” a discussion with  Cynthia Ong Reward Manager – Global Mobility, Coca Cola Amatil and Colin Murphy, SIRVA

Working through a risk management plan can help to identify risks, analyse, prioritise, implement and monitor solutions.  It helps to better understand the business and employee impact, across geographies and across a range of identified scenarios or risks.  

• How are we managing risk in global mobility and how are we facilitating business decisions in risk management?

• How can Global Mobility be transparent with companies and coach them through different scenarios?

• Discussion around appetite for risk in mobilising the workforce?

• Changing attitudes to risk management over the last 12 months and what have we learned? What do we do differently going forward?

The pandemic has accelerated thinking on the future of work. Virtualisation of the workforce is taking place in many organisations and there are many implications to be considered. Employees and employers need to evaluate the long-term potential for remote work;

• How are companies adapting to this type of work and what is the appetite within organisations for international remote working?  

• Working through the decision-making process to approve working arrangements and how this can be simplified

• What leadership capabilities are required to manage this work-type, who is managing it and are we coaching employees to make it a good experience?

• Exploration around duty of care and how mobility’s role is broadening into health, safety & wellness and legal involvement

This was how Fadi X was born…stateless. A stateless person is not recognised as a citizen by any country. They do not have a nationality, no identity and no rights.

Raised by a single mother, Fadi lived the first 28 years of his life as an illegal alien in Lebanon. Yet this incredible young man defied the odds and made it all the way to Sydney. His journey is one of suffering, despair and eventually triumph. A true testament of strength, perseverance and most importantly hope.

Crown World Mobility helps organisations manage global talent and talented individuals perform on the global stage.

Managing a globally mobile workforce creates challenges for any organisation.

Crown's approach is to work with all stakeholders to find the right solution, implementing a program that is successful for the whole organisation. This often means finding a unique solution that Crown, with offices in over 200 locations, has the experience and capability to deliver.
