Webinar: Business Travel and Short-Term Assignment Benchmark Survey Highlights

International business travel and short-term assignments are two of the fastest growing types of international mobility. Designed to meet global short-term business objectives, they also provide organizations with opportunities to address other important goals such as talent development and greater flexibility for both the business and assignee.

Listen to our 30-minute webinar where we discuss highlights from our recent benchmark, including:

  • Only 31% of companies indicate Global Mobility has overall responsibility for international business travel, confirming that this type of mobility is not always a routine offering within the Global Mobility policy suite
  • Typical short-term provisions include relocation, tax equalization, cost of living, and housing support, but others such as incentives and leave tend to be delivered only under certain conditions or on a case-by-case basis
  • Companies are not fully leveraging technology to assist businesses in understanding mobility and cost impacts of short-term assignments
