Mobility Matters, Episode 2: "Temporary Living Challenges Today: APAC"
The long-drawn pandemic has brought about tremendous changes in the temporary living space. Amongst these changes, in the past two years we have seen a consolidation of providers, skyrocketing rentals, weekday packages offered to remote workers, and an increased demand for bigger units to accommodate working remotely.
As air travel recovers globally, there are new challenges every day—from volatile immigration timelines to a shortage in supply chain staffing—as providers adjust and race to meet demands.
In this episode of “Mobility Matters,” we launch the topic of “What’s Happening in the Temporary Living Arena?” and focus on the global challenges faced by temporary living providers and the innovative solutions offered by subject matter experts Alzone Ang, Vice President of Cartus Global Talent Mobility, and Michelle Low, Global Vice President of Supply Chain from Synergy Global Housing, a leader in serviced accommodation program management.
