What are 55% of companies doing?
Commuter assignments have long been in use. AIRINC’s 2020 Mobility Outlook Survey revealed that 55% of companies either currently have or are planning to add a commuter policy.
AIRINC recently conducted an international Commuter Assignment Benchmark Survey, which shows that the biggest reason companies utilize this type of mobility is to meet business needs. The benchmark survey reports that 56% of companies don’t restrict the use of international commuter assignments between certain locations, and almost half of organizations do not limit the use to certain job levels. This suggests that commuter policies have the potential to be more broadly applied if this type of assignment continues to become more common.
International commuters and Global Mobility
International commuters generally fall under Global Mobility’s purview. Almost 90% of companies indicated that Global Mobility is fully or at least somewhat aware of commuter assignments. Some organizations also commented in the survey that they’re looking to develop a commuter policy. As usage of commuter assignments continues – or increases – companies will likely strive to have a more formal framework in place to manage these types of assignments.
