This year's BGRS Global Mobility Trends Survey echoed the findings of other recent studies in confirming that the link between talent attraction and global mobility could, and should, be improved.
In their survey, BGRS identified the 10% of multi-national companies who reported success in aligning their workforce planning and global mobility programmes. Using lessons from these successful multi-nationals, they have produced a Top 6 list of recommended actions that can be implemented to achieve better outcomes and deliver ROI on mobility spend.
Of particular interest is the fact that the successful companies are far more likely to use candidate identification, selection and assessment tools, and are also more likely to measure international assignment performance results against company metrics and align and compare with results from other departments. Food for thought.
"Although many companies see evidence of talent mobility’s potential to attract and retain key talent and have taken certain steps to align supporting business practices, the prevailing view is that the breakthrough— for most— has yet to occur."
