In this webinar, we shared the latest thinking on the popular industry topic ‘the changing role of the Global Mobility profession’— with a spotlight on exploring how Global Mobility teams can successfully manage and shape their evolving role within their organisation— in a way that contributes most value.

There is no doubt that Global Mobility for many organisations has either undergone or about to go through a period of transformation. How employees work around the world and the role of the Global Mobility function itself has been evolving for years—and is still changing.
