We are delighted to share our latest HRS thought leadership paper- "Talent mobility 2020 and beyond" – with you. In our report we predict that talent mobility will rise by 50% in the next decade. The growing importance of emerging markets has created a significant shift in mobility patterns and volumes. New, more modern, forms of global mobility are on the rise in response to business demands and employee preferences. Where assignments were typically ‘duration based’, new short-term ‘purpose based’ assignments are becoming increasingly popular. Many of these are ‘virtual’ or ‘commuter’ assignments with no relocation involved.
