In this paper, we explore what’s next for Global Mobility professionals over the next 24 months as we rapidly move towards the next decade.

There’s an expectation to be a lot of things—subject specialists in all matters associated with compliance, HR, relocation, local country employment market practices, analytics, employee counsellors  as well as being agile and flexible, structured and consistent, commercial and innovative —what a job role!

‘The Internet of Things’, AI (artificial intelligence) and the increasing pace and complexity of international work arrangements are all contributing factors of a more blurred, uncertain future.
