If you’re responsible for your company’s global mobility program, you know how important it is to stay on top of events and changes in the areas of the world where your employees live and work. Rising rents, local turmoil or evolving employee behaviors and preferences could really derail a well-planned program. Knowing what’s happening and reacting quickly could be the key to global mobility success.
Our new report, the third installment of Global Mobility: Top Trends to Watch, focuses on 19 global and regional trends that could have a major impact on your global mobility program. Here we’ve provided you with a sneak peek into the insights of our free, downloadable report to help you stay ahead of the curve.
One of the first things we examined was the price of home rentals in different regions. It’s important to know where prices are rising so you can be prepared when assigning employees to those cities. For example, Hong Kong, Moscow and Caracas have the highest rental prices for their respective regions. In our report, we dig deeper to examine what other areas have changing prices and why.
Another hot topic is the war for talent, which is evolving rapidly due to Generation Y and their differing behaviors and wants from previous generations. This group isn’t staying still – they’re moving jobs and locations more frequently, and they’re choosing different places to live than their predecessors. This is keeping employers on their toes – it’s important to understand your talent pool in order to woo and keep the best young employees.
The report also focuses on schools across the globe – we note the shortages of places in international schools in cities such as Hong Kong and countries like Brazil and Mexico. Schools are also a worry in the U.S. – whether it’s overcrowding in some public schools or a trend toward private in certain areas.
These are just a few of the many topics we highlight in Global Mobility: Top Trends to Watch. For more details on and further examination of these topics plus many more, check out the full report by clicking below.
