    On December 2, Benivo will be revealing their list of the top 100 in-house Global Mobility professionals on Benivo’s weekly 'The View From The Top' hosted by Brian Friedman. There will be numerous special guests appearing to assist with the big reveal, including AIRINC's Global Growth Leader, Morgan Crosby.


    What makes for a top Global Mobility professional?

    AIRINC was one of several organizations which partnered with Benivo to support this exciting new initiative, and so we asked AIRINC team members around the world what qualities and skills they thought top Mobility professionals should possess. Here’s what they came up with:

    Organized, efficient, analytical, knowledgeable, continuous learner…

    Global Mobility’s core lies in allowing businesses and employees to deploy themselves around the world as smoothly as possible. Mobility achieves this through its operational efficiencies and expertise.

    Flexible, understanding, agile, resourceful, problem solver, innovative…

    Complications often arise, requiring Global Mobility to think quickly and creatively. This resourcefulness has proven vital as Mobility programs respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Collaborative, connected, engaging, empathetic, trustworthy, team player, good rapport with stakeholders…

    Global Mobility often finds itself at the junction of multiple departments, each with their own objectives and viewpoints. Sorting and balancing them all requires clear communication, the empathy to understand people’s perspectives, and the teamwork to collaborate and find mutually beneficial solutions.

    Brave, audacious, strategic…

    The value of Global Mobility as a strategic partner has been growing more apparent in recent years. Organizations are discovering that Mobility’s strategic insights can be just as valuable (if not more valuable) as its operational expertise. As 2021 approaches and new concepts such as “work from anywhere” and virtual assignments take hold, Global Mobility is situated in an ideal place to help companies thrive in the new environment.
