Recently, Cartus conducted a survey to determine whether or not clients and prospects are using—or are considering using—Virtual Assignments.
Within the group of thirty-four respondents, Cartus found that 15% are currently using Virtual Assignments. The benefits they are providing assignees include cultural training, travel coordination, and mentorship.
Of those not currently using Virtual Assignments, 28% of respondents are considering doing so on a global basis in the future. One respondent mentioned that Virtual Assignments are currently being used by assignees who returned to the U.S. early in the pandemic and were subsequently impacted when U.S. borders shut down; however, their organization does not intend to use Virtual Assignments in the future.
