Companies are increasingly beginning to understand the importance of fostering a productive mobile workforce. Unfortunately, as is made overwhelmingly clear in the new Global Mobility Survey conducted by Deloitte, this knowledge is not the same as action. It seems as though there is a widespread desire among HR, talent and global mobility professionals to make strides in developing good mobile workforce practices, but that few of them feel their efforts have been successful.
Here is a quick look at some of the findings:
Only 2% of organizations see their global mobility function as world class
70% of business and HR stakeholders say global mobility in their organization is underperforming or needs improvement
Nearly 40% of organizations say they are currently reviewing or are about to review their overall mobility strategies
Only 12% perform assessments of their mobility practices and make links back to improvement efforts
