Global mobility is experiencing an unprecedented level of change as reported in the AIRINC “2017 Mobility Outlook Survey.” Mobility functions are managing a greater variety of cross-border movement than ever before. Localizations, indefinite transfers, extended business travel; these are all examples of the alternative approaches Mobility is leveraging to deploy talent around the globe. This year’s survey results introduce trends in measuring Mobility’s performance and report on the evolution of key program features. The 2017 Mobility trends include the increased use of technology and metrics to track program success and continued diversity of programs and policy.
The hallmarks of best-in-class mobility today are having the right policies, employing the right staff, and collecting valuable data to track the function’s performance and progress. Mobility's main challenges for 2017 are finding and retaining the right skill sets and ensuring the function is organized to fulfill its objectives
The AIRINC research was collected from 130 best practice global organizations and contains industry and region-specific data on the use of metrics to improve performance, resourcing the Mobility function, policy segmentation and flexibility and cost containment strategies.
Multinational pooling is gaining increasing traction as a viable solution to stemming the rising cost of employee benefits for organizations with employees in the global environment. The Willis Towers Watson 2016/2017 Multinational Pooling and Benefit Captives Research Report provides strategies for managing insurable benefit plans and costs pro-actively. The report also provides answers to many of the questions routinely asked by global benefits leaders and risk managers concerning the increasing cost of maintaining these plans.
Companies often struggle with making the assessment concerning implementation of a successful benefit financing strategy. Selecting an optimal strategy that best fits your company is often a combination of financing approaches because of the complexity and diversity of multinational organizations.
The Towers Willis Watson research provides the largest database of its kind using data from over 1,500 annual reports submitted by more than 200 multinational companies. The report covers all participating benefit plans, including life, accident, disability, medical, and some retirement plans. The research enables multinational companies to access data and insights to help optimize the financing of their insurable benefits.
