Global Mobility Survey 2014: The Results

Imy Clarke - On behalf of Alchemy Recruitment, April 16, 2014

In its fifth year, the Santa Fe Global Mobility Survey has been completed for 2014 and the results released. Originally established for the purpose of providing the largest and most reliable data source for HR and Global Mobility professionals, the survey continues to benchmark global mobility programmes.

Based on responses from 1,269 in-house Global Mobility departments from organisations around the world, the 2014 survey has revealed that a large 47% of surveyed companies now link their global mobility programmes with talent management. Of these companies linking talent and mobility, 36% are able to draw assignees from a talent pipeline, compared with 15% of companies who don’t link mobility to talent management at all.

Investigating this link between talent management and global mobility, the 2014 Global Mobility Report provides a commentary from an expert panel of widely respected practitioners, including Emma Gibbs of the Expat Academy, Peter Reilly of the Institute for Employment Studies, Dr Yvonne McNulty of the Singapore Institute of Management University, Stuart Woollard of King’s College London and John Rason of Santa Fe Consulting Services.

Mike Brazier, Santa Fe Group, with regards to the survey has highlighted that “Linking talent and global mobility makes a dramatic difference to the effectiveness of each assignment and the way that business is able to perform…your business can be highly effective in identifying skills requirements to build its talent pool and have assignment ready employees”.
