    During these unprecedented times, Global Mobility is challenged with the difficult task of supporting an international workforce amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This survey focuses on how companies are handling their international expatriate populations, and the steps Global Mobility is taking to address the unique circumstances due to COVID-19.

    Preliminary results of this COVID-19 Pulse Survey include:

    • 64% of participating companies have put all new expat assignment initiations on hold
    • 59% of companies are still using the corporate travel policy for airfare when evacuating expats
    • 87% of companies are not paying an additional, temporary hardship for expats remaining in the host location
