Exploring Talent Mobility in the “New Normal”

Facing a worldwide pandemic, global mobility—an often quiet force—has been thrust onto the global stage. The function of global mobility— deploying and enabling talent effectively—has a fundamental role in designing what is being referred to as the “new normal.”

Defining The “New Normal”

While much has changed due to COVID-19, the key deliverables of global mobility remain the same—from recruitment optimization to leadership development to retaining top talent. Global mobility has helped reimagine the work environment constricted by an onslaught of travel regulations and safety mandates throughout the world. Time and time again, the key to success for global mobility is agile adaptation rather than watchful waiting.

Global Mobility as a Function

These include:

  • Global workplace
  • Relocation travel
  • Talent development
  • Digital transformation

Since the start of the pandemic and looking forward, we can rely on global mobility to continue to provide agile support, fast recommendations, and fundamental talent strategies for success. Global mobility empowers organizations to grow internationally and to develop into the future.

For additional information and insight, be sure to read Robert Line’s work, The Changing Role of Talent Mobility in the New "Normal," which contributes a unique perspective as the second article of our “Executive Perspective” series.
