Global Mobility has a tricky role in aligning with various areas of the organisation to bring about change and a value proposition like no other.  It should be that we’re not just catching-up, but moving towards a framework with flexibility for the future of a global workforce – the alignment with a diversity lens.

  • How have companies addressed policy changes to cater for an inclusive workforce? 
  • What steps have companies taken to introduce more assignment-inclusive benefits, for example: health policies, financial, well-being?
  • Are companies’ inclusive policies that are designed to support all employees, adapted to the needs of the broader Mobility family, where geographically possible?
  • What policy changes have been made and what are some that companies are thinking about? 
  • Are policies being redefined and compensation adjusted, to consider pandemic risk and sensitivities to attract (essential) talent for international assignments, for example, not just location-specific hardship, but COVID-19 considerations?

Global Mobility professionals have on-demand access to numerous data sources every day - such as compensation, cost, policy and demographics, but working out what you can do with that data isn’t as always straight forward. In this session, EY will help identify the possible sources of data you have access to, and then provide practical guidance as to how you might be able to use that data to better understand your program, support future strategic decisions and pro-actively add value to your business.
