The RES Forum released its annual report, Working Toward 'Top Class' Global Mobility - SMART Global Talent Management and the Employee Value Proposition, where they examined how companies can win the war on global talent by using employee value proposition (EVPs) to help "attract, engage, motivate and retain staff," according to the report.
Global mobility plays an active role in creating EVPs that make an organization attractive on a global talent scale. In the report, the RES Forum identifies how to create strong EVPs by focusing on four key areas:
- Tangible organizational tools - Which include incorporating global talent management and careers into overall talent and career planning, constructing meaningful global careers, and planning repatriation before an assignment to engage long-term development
- Intangible organizational tools - Including retaining repatriates through messaging about the benefits of assignments; showing how internationally mobile staff benefit from assignments; and ensuring flexible and focused cooperation between global mobility, talent specialists and global business leaders
- Tangible individual tools - Including developing professional and global competencies, offering opportunities to advance in a global career and giving expats the tools to master specific tasks or projects abroad
- Intangible individual tools - Including enabling authenticity with clear roles and defined expectations, increasing expats feeling of purpose within an assignment, supporting valued family experiences, and encouraging international and local friendships beyond an assignment
Read the entire report to learn how you can use the RES Forum's SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and timebound) organization model to elevate your EVPs and ultimately attract the best talent around the world.
